Veterans Day is a time to honor the brave men and women who have selflessly served our nation. It’s not just about parades, ceremonies or big-box store sales; it’s about recognizing and appreciating the sacrifices made by our veterans in service to this incredible nation, and addressing the unique challenges they face because of such selfless sacrifice.
The transition from military service to civilian life, or even simply continuing to live a healthy life as a military service member, can be a complex and challenging journey. I’ve lived through it, and now I dedicate my life to helping others navigate the difficult process.
For many veterans, it involves not only adjusting to a different lifestyle but also dealing with the physical, mental and spiritual wounds that often result from their service. This Veterans Day, I hope Americans will be willing to take a closer look at the difficulties that many veterans face, and more deeply appreciate their sacrifices and what it is they sacrificed for.
“I founded the Mighty Oaks Foundation to fill the existing gap in supporting struggling veterans, active-duty service members, and first responders as they find hope and healing. Our faith-based programs help attendees address and overcome the hidden wounds of war, like post-traumatic stress and combat trauma, and feel inspired to use their talents as they continue to serve their communities through a new mission.”
