What an honor to speak with Melissa Fitzgerald. This talented actor/activist has taken on a new leadership role so she can give back to the veterans who’ve fought for our freedom. Take a moment to learn about Justice For Vets. Just go to http://www.justiceforvets.org/
Here’s what’s at stake. Many soldiers have served multiple tours of duty in the wars of Iraq and Afghanistan and find when they come home, they face an unexpected, silent war: a daily struggle to fit back into a normal lifestyle or civilian life.
The statistics are angering & sad. Every single day 22 of our brave veterans are committing suicide. Many are self medicating with alcohol & drugs often to deal with Post Tramatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). Time and again, this downward spiral leads to legal troubles. And that’s where Justice For Vets comes in, to bring both honor and accountability to these Americans. The structure provided in the growing number of Veteran Treatment Courts works to help rebuild the lives of our veterans as well as save taxpayer money.
Again, speaking with Melissa was a game changer. Please reach out to her via the Justice For Vets website for a much-needed donation. The time is now to fight for the Americans who’ve fought for you! To make a donation or to get involved go to http://www.justiceforvets.org/
