Help Fight The Invisible Wounds of War This Flag Day
Not all wounds can be seen, but that doesn't make them any less traumatic or severe. In fact, the treatment of mental health issues such as Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injury have been identified as one of the most critically under-resourced needs of our service members, veterans and their families.
Regular readers of this blog know that one of the primary goals of ServiceNation is to help increase understandings between the military and civilian communities. Mental health challenges are one area that require significant improvements. Our friends at Code of Support share this sentinment, and they have an innovative idea for a new way to support our troops.
This Flag Day weekend (June 9-10) join with our partners at Code of Support and thousands of other Americans in the “Give-Back-24 Challenge,” where for one short 24-hour period we collectively engage in activities to raise funds to help treat the invisible wounds of combat.
There are two ways to get involved. Make a pledge/donation today in support of one of the planned events. All donations will be directed to the “Invisible Wounds of War Fund” which includes five carefully vetted organizations, all helping our troops, veterans and their families who are dealing with issues such as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and Traumatic Brain Injuries.
Or, go one step further and create our own event and register it as a GB-24 Participating Event! Code of Support have done their best to make this process as easy and impactful as possible.
