RETURNING THE FAVOR
Often when our veterans return from their tour of service, the tolls of war have been too great to bear alone.
Wars in the Middle East and other parts of the world have left some of our bravest service personnel with injuries that will affect them the rest of their lives. Some require intense rehabilitation and years of physical therapy.
Other trauma cannot be seen. The horrors of war leave psychological scars that make it difficult to reenter civilian life. Many are hesitant to seek the help they need, or encounter red tape and stigma when they do reach out for help.
Cutbacks to veterans’ services from the federal government, combined with an increase in wartime active personnel has put a strain on health care, education and job opportunities for veterans.
And so many want to help. The Journey Home Project sees as its mission connecting donors to veterans’ organizations that do the most good.
Help our heroes with their Journey Home
GOING BEYOND THE PROBLEM
We believe that every soldier has his own path. The path is different; the process remains the same;
TO RETURN. TO REHABILITATE. TO REINTEGRATE.
In order to accomplish that, we go beyond the problem, and make every effort to identify the organization, or organizations that are best suited for the needs of the soldier. The Journey home for the soldier and his family is not an easy one, but one that’s very attainable with a strong team and combined vision. The Journey Home Project was founded to bring awareness and support to those who are a part of a soldiers journey home.
PTSDPTSD is a tragic and defined enemy that is aggressively attacking our soldiers, community and country, a silent killer that knows no boundaries and is relentless in its pursuit to destroy anyone in its path.
EDUCATIONCharlie believes that the opportunity to provide, or to support a continued education, is one of the greatest gifts that we can share with veterans or their families.
ReintegrationEvery soldier, Marine, airman or sailor’s journey home is different.. The process of a returning soldier is all of this, and more. Some believe it to be the most difficult of all tasks a Veteran faces at tour’s end.
RehabilitationWe at The Journey Home Project realize that once a young man, or woman, signs on the dotted line and becomes one our nations finest, his or her life changes forever.
And I learned early in my life that only two things protected America, the grace of Almighty God and the United States Military. It was that way then, it is that way now and will forever be that way as long as America remains a free and sovereign nation.Charlie Daniels
