Bottom line - I am involved with GallantFew because they do make a difference in the lives of our veterans.
GallantFew delivers on the promise to help reduce veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicides through a unique system of one-on-one home-town mentoring by veterans for new veterans.
I have seen them in action helping resolve each of their missions, and have personally heard testimonials of their effects on Veterans and their families. The GallantFew mentor network has been directly involved in assisting veterans about to lose their residence, and interceded with veterans contemplating suicide.
They are also actively and aggressively assisting veterans with job placement, resumes and job contacts through not only networking, but through association with a number of other veteran organizations and Department of Defense points of contact.
Consider a donation or volunteering your services.
I have been given the distinct opportunity to serve as a GallantFew board member for the past couple of years. It is a pleasure to serve beside so many people who want to tenaciously tackle the transition issues our service members face as they make their major life shift from service member to civilian. What we do truly changes lives.
GallantFew was formed by a man of vision, passion and integrity that I also have had the pleasure of knowing on both a personal and professional basis for over 35 years, Mr. Karl Monger. Karl has personally experienced the highs of military service, being part of something greater than yourself and doing something really important, as well as the lows, loss of close friends and comrades in arms that are killed at too young an age, long deployments that seperate families and stress those all important relationships. He has also personally experienced the difficulities of reintegrating back into the civilian world after leaving the service; being unemployed or almost as bad, being underemployed, loss of that core "guiding mission" feeling and purpose that is present in every servicemember, and their families as well. Simply put, Karl has walked this walked and wants to help others because he has already walked point and broken trail, and thats what soldiers do isn't it? That is a core principle of the Warrior ethos, you never leave a comrade behind. If you need a "Ranger Buddy" that understands and can help, call Karl. If you are passionate about helping our countries finest with a gift of your most precious asset, time, call Karl. If you can help resource this most important mission by sending a financial contribution, call Karl. Thank You!
