Valiant Veterans began out of a need for post war veterans returning home from the recent wars of the past 12 years, who suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome and Traumatic Brain Injury.Currently, we work with specific Veterans who are returning, and not yet home, through communication of counsel on how to prepare for their first time reintegrating to civilian life. We are currently doing the same with combat veterans who had been imprisoned for violations due to their illness and working with them as they reintegrate.In March of 2014 we will be launching our first art therapy program called ARTillery; serving our veterans and their families and equipping them with the power of art as a way of healing. We have invested in a service dog that we are training from a puppy to work with our severely challenged veterans. His name is “Gunnar” and he is a Siberian Husky/Alaskan Malamute who is now an honorary Marine Corporal for the impact he is already making in the lives of our service men and women.
Our coining ceremonies have been a great reward to nearly 100 veterans at this time and we have become known as a place where veterans are able to feel accepted. Our efforts have attracted a number of Vietnam Veterans who are now just beginning to emerge to receive the much needed support they have not had these many years.
