In my experience I have not come across a non-profit quite like the Gallant Few. Truly unique in it's approach with a more holistic healing process for the transitioning soldier to veteran status.
Special Operators take heed as when you really need a helping hand, the Gallant Few will be there. I have seen this in big and small actions by the cadre of dedicated volunteers along with Karl Monger it's founder. The man exudes positivity and a can do attitude.
I have been fortunate in life to have supported other charities like the MDA and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, setup fundraisers for other local charities and advised non-profits such as Cradles to Crayons and The Jackson Laboratory. Nothing has gotten me as excited as what the Gallant Few is doing and all it's future potential.
