Valiant Veterans seeks to advocate and bring resources and acute awareness to the hidden wounds of war, endured by post war veterans, returning home from the the past 13 years and other past conflicts, who suffer from PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder), TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) MST (Military Sexual Trauma). In March of 2014, we embarked on our journey to launch non-traditional therapy for combat veterans. Our first success was an art therapy program called ARTillery; serving our veterans and their families; equipping them with the power of art as a way of healing. We have sought to be involved in service dogs for wounded veterans effected by PTSD and TBI. Corporal Gunnar, a Siberian Husky/Alaskan Malamute joined the Valiant Veteran (VV) and LiveLife Center (LLC) family, who is scheduled to become the ‘life battle buddy’ of a 13 year veteran, of the post 9/11 wars, who struggles with severe PTSD and 2 TBI’s. Now Scout, arriving October 2014, our second service dog in training, will be trained with dual responsibilities as a service dog and a therapy dog and will work at the LiveLife Center, through the ‘Gunnar Center’, assisting veterans in the training of personal service dogs.Today, Valiant Veterans concentrates its efforts to bring awareness to our veterans fighting the war for care and resources at home. Ultimately launching its programs in non-traditional therapy, celebration and honoring of all veterans, peace time and conflict, at the LiveLife Center. Please read through the website and see all about the establishing of the LiveLife Center, a first of its kind wellness and therapeutic facility, with housing and jobs, for veterans and their families. As well as all the current and future programming and events of Valiant Veterans.
