Is am a disabled vet with PTSD.. it’s hard to explain to people the demons that we fight . Sometimes it just takes a simple “hi how you how can I help” I have a service dog that does that for me everyday . This organization seriously is the best non profit out there for vets fighting the war at home . Love these people .. great thing is not all are vets just people want time to help !

I had heard of this organization but was never very familiar. Then we had Sarah Sparks, a State Leader in Indiana, speak to our run club. I learned more about the organization and knew I wanted to be involved. I began as an ambassador and about a year later became a co-State Leader for Indiana. I have seen and heard from people that Mission 22 is making a difference and I am honored to do my part.

I became part of Mission22 after losing my husband to suicide. Mission22 is our way to heal and keep our loved ones memory alive. We meet new people every time we are out and we are educating the public on stigma with suicide and bringing attention to the 20 (+/-) Veterans that for everyday to suicide. Until zero, I will be Mission22.

As a Marine Veteran and volunteer, I absolutely love this nonprofit. Most runs I participate in I wear my Mission 22 gear to raise awareness. Being part of Mission 22 gives me the feeling that I am making a difference! PTS and TBI are the top reasons we lose Veterans daily. We are here to help and let them know they are not alone, we care and they matter!

I found Mission 22 after talking with a classmate who was an Ambassador. Once I researched and found out more about the mission, I knew I had to jump on board. As someone who deals with PTSD, I can share my story of almost becoming one of the 22. Getting out in the community and spreading the word on how we can end veteran suicide, is something I feel everyone should do. The mission is so much larger than what meets the eye.

This is a beautiful organization filled with the most giving, open hearted people with the kindest souls. Everyone is here because they truly understand what it is like to be affected by loss and never want anyone to feel hopeless or like they have no one to turn to for help. Thanks to this group, no one ever has to feel alone again because if they reach out, these people will give their all. I fully support and respect everyone involved in Mission 22, 100% and am so proud and honored to be a part of this and making sure that no soldier is left behind. ;IGY6

I was so lost after losing my brother, a veteran, to suicide. I found Mission 22 during a push-up social media challenge and began volunteer work. I was so angry and isolated and connecting with veterans and their families has brought me so much healing and restored peace and purpose in my life. Everyday I see people step out of hopelessness and become happy and healthy. Their endless efforts to reach the hurting, their spirit of unity, and their altruistic endeavors make Mission 22 my charitable organization of choice.

Mission 22 is a amazing group of people, with a wonderful welcoming group of volunteers. All of the ambassadors are the kindest people. We are all in this together trying to make sure our veterans are okay. This organization has been extremely beneficial to so many, veterans and their families. It has also been extremely beneficial in communities, spreading awareness to those who didn't realize exactly what these veterans are facing and going through.

I recently lost my God son to suicide, literally three weeks ago. I had no clue where to turn for support. One of his friends told me about Mission22, so I immediately seeked them out. They welcomed me with open arms. They provided the support that I needed to get through this unimaginable pain. I am now an Ambassador for Mission 22. I am honored to be a part of such an amazing nonprofit. Our hearts are genuine and we all have the same goal, to end veteran suicide. My Godson was only 28 years old. He was such an amazing person with a huge heart. All he ever wanted to do in life was make a difference. I have chosen to pick up where he left off, and honor him by spreading awareness in hopes of preventing anymore suicides. Everything I do will be to honor him and so many others! Mission 22 is making a difference and I am honored to be a small part of that.

I am an Oklahoma Ambassador for Mission 22! Just finished my first event at the Great State Fair of Oklahoma and Mission 22 really came through for me and for the Veterans attending the Fair. We got information into the hands of so many! What drew me to Mission 22 was their "GOLD STANDARD" .. over 88% of all donations go back to the Veterans! THAT is something to be proud of!!

Thanks Mission 22!

I found Mission 22 while on vacation in Pigeon Forge for Jeep Invasion. One of the Jeeps had a Mi22ion decal.
I started researching what the mission consisted of, and possibly more importantly, where were donations being spent to help Veterans.
I could only find positive comments, notes, and feedback. So I applied for an Ambassador roll. After being accepted, I have volunteered for one event, but followed many events all over the United States. Each event has been filled with positive veterans and supporters that truly care. People that want to make a difference.
It is very important to me for both male and female veterans be treated with respect. Other veteran groups I have previously helped, could sometimes be thought of as a “boys club”. Mission 22 has shown nothing but professionalism. I believe, M22 is here to stay, and will continue to do great things all over the US. I am excited to be considered as part of District 11’s family.
God bless our veterans and their family’s.

My husband and I have been volunteers A.K.A ambassadors with Mission 22 for about 2 years now. We are beyond proud to represent the great work Mission 22 does to benefit our veterans!
Living in New York, we are a bit far from headquarters, but the communication and assistance we receive makes it feel as if they are right there with us at every turn!

Mission 22 has helped out in so many ways. From informing me how many veterans take their lives on a daily basis to what programs are out there for our veterans. I myself am a Marine combat veteran who suffers from PTSD. So i know what these veterans we talk to are going though and have went through. It’s a scary place to be in but with the help of mission 22 and it’s many programs and ambassadors, veterans will feel at home and comfortable. So please spread awareness for our veterans. I am also the Southeast state leader of Florida. Semper Fi.
