The program structure is top notch. It will show you that the camaraderie and support network you had in the military are not gone.

"Hi Karl! I just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to you for Gallant Few, everything they've done and you do. RRR last year opened so many doors for me. The hole in my heart after receiving my DD214 has been filled because of Drinkin Bros and Gallant Few. I thought the only way to fill that void would be to reenlist. I've been trying to for years and thought I would need to accept that and ignore the emptiness there. I have my next objective and a wonderful tribe surrounding me. I'm excited about where this path takes me. Thank you. - Jessica Stith 2017"


“Life is so funny. I've been struggling lately with a depression that 'Im unfamiliar with due to chronic pain. I'm sure you can relate as I saw that you had an MRI done for your spine yesterday. I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon next week and I'm hoping to begin Rehabilitation of some sort. Anyway, my motivation has been lacking and I've been feeling pretty low about myself since it's been difficult to exercise or get out and be physical or hold my girls or do a lot of everyday things. It's amazing to me that people so far away can make a post on Facebook at the exact time that I need to see it. I got that motivation from GallantFew last week. Then this morning I woke up to a message from Sue Peney to be her guest at the races at Churchill Downs on Survivor day in honor of her son. I was taken back and moved to tears that she would offer me that spot. Also she is going to acquire a ticket for me to go to the veterans of the year banquet in Louisville Kentucky the day after that.
My point is, this is an amazing family. And life is so funny and I am so grateful for the friends that I have made within gallantfew. I don't think that I can express that enough. I really really look forward to doing more and being around this crew more in the future.” - Jessica Stith"

Gallantfew is 110% dedicated to the service of disabled veterans, veterans in need and veterans who wish to help other veterans.

Fortunately, I know the founder and sever other board members...some of us served on active duty together, in the Ranger Regiment...meaning I can personally and professionally vouch for their integrity, honor and good citizenry!!

Way to go GallantFew! You really do make a real difference in the lives of so many.

At the beginning of a crazy fitness journey I found GallentFew through RunRangerRun. I didn't want to donate or support the hype of another veterans organization so I did some research. GallantFew does so much for veterans which is why I've supported them so much over the past year. Great group of leaders supporting the few that honestly need it! Thank you!

Last year I have the distinct privilege of meeting Karl Monger at a job fair put together by the Student Veteran Services of the University of North Texas where I was working as a Veteran peer mentor and still to this day the President of the Student Veteran Association. We were introduced by Michael Gutierrez who is a professor at UNT and a fellow Army Ranger. The immediate months after our introduction we were putting together a discussion panel proposal for the Student Veterans of America conference in San Antonio. Which was an in-depth discussion panel on how to foster student Veteran success. All the while participating in GallantFew events such as rock climbing and the upcoming 565 Run Ranger Run. We are currently figuring out ways to implement ideas gathered from all our interactions into every aspect of Veteran lives. Karl and GallantFew have been nothing short of amazing and integral in the Veterans who are involved with this great organization.

More than 2 years ago I had the privilege of meeting Karl Monger, a Retired Army
Ranger at a meeting set up by a local Green Beret by the name of Dennis Sheridan.
The purpose was to help Karl Expand his GallantFew outreach, by creating a new
Local Organization, here in Trophy Club, that would serve all veterans from the
surrounding area and provide a place where Veterans could get together and interact
with other Veterans to help insure no veteran ever felt alone or unappreciated. This is
especially important to the Warriors who return from the combat zone and attempt to
transition back to civilian life. These warriors have returned from a place where they
had a comrade who covered their “6” as they did for their comrade, and were secure
being part of a Team who all faced a common goal. Karl was already very busy
traveling around the country doing his very best to educate and train others to feel
what he felt and to develop the Passion that he exudes for supporting and saving our
Warriors who are not ready to face life back at home, which is Why he wanted to
create a New Local Organization in his home town. As a result of that first meeting, the
Metroport Veterans Association or MVA, was created, growing from the original 3
members to over 100 today.

The MVA meets each month in a local restaurant to enjoy camaraderie and a great
breakfast, while listening to Guest Speakers who bring forth a broad spectrum of topics
focused on the needs and interests of veterans. Through the MVA and GallantFew a
number of veterans have found a listening ear, helping hand, and the warm hearts of
other veterans who truly understand what they are going through and are there to do
whatever it takes to help them in their time of need.

Not only is Karl Monger a Patriot, Warrior Servant, and Friend, but he also produces
heart wrenching videos and short films that bring the torment of returning Warriors to
the screen helping others to more deeply appreciate and understand the doubts, pain,
fears and self-imposed guilt that drive far too many to take their own lives.

Not stopping there, Karl has just published “Common Sense Transition”, which is a
road map for the warrior soldier who will make the transition back to life away from the
battlefield, and the communities these warriors are returning to. Karl has performed
with Honor as a Ranger, and continues to Serve with Honor as the Executive Director
of GallantFew and Founder of the Metroport Veterans Association.

My life is fuller and richer having known and worked with Karl Monger over these past
2+ years and fully support him and GallantFew as a GREAT NON-PROFIT worthy of
any and all Accolades, Rewards and Honors associated therewith.

Gallant Few is the result of a classic intersection of preparation + opportunity = success. Karl's story, as told in his book, "Common Sense Transition: A Call to Action and A Blueprint for Change" is a personal story of this formula, but Karl is a man of vision and so has taken his personal experience and applied it to a unique service organization in Gallant Few. His organizations actions, which are lead by his personal example, have helped countless veterans in ways that have changed lives for the better. In my opinion, there is no more important veterans support organization in existence today. Gallant Few is active, transparent, accountable and effective. I encourage anyone that wants to help honor veterans service to their country, and do it in a way that makes a truly positive impact, join Gallant Few by volunteering time, talent and money.

This outfit has the veteran transition down to a well oiled machine. I enjoy volunteering my time at this organization because they have a clear and concise mission. If you are in a transition phase or have transitioned successfully from active duty, give them your time, you will not be disappointed.

I became involved with GallantFew through the rotary club that I am involved with, and have come to know Karl and the work that he does with veterans as exceptional. I have seen firsthand how much GallantFew makes a positive and lasting impact for veterans who are struggling with PTSD and/or with the transition back into a civilian life. It is an incredible organization that is absolutely necessary, not only for veterans, but to create awareness for civilians, such as myself, to help out those who served and protected as much as possible.

Gallant Few literally saved my life.
I was 30 minutes from walking in front of a bus when Karl Monger spun this wonderful organization up on my behalf.
That was 4 years ago. I am alive today because Gallant Few was around to help me in my time of crisis and greatest need.

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.

The efforts by GallantFew superseded my expectations and even imagination. I was without a job and had been looking for quite awhile. GallantFew was contacted about a position that I was a fit for. After only a handful of informal conversations and interviews I was hired at 200% my previous salary in a capacity more suited to my skill set. I had been looking for quite some time, GallantFew was clearly the driving force to help me through my unemployment.

I have volunteered with gallantfew. The group will not only encourage and "help", but from my expereince, analyze the needs of the ranger, and put together a team to handle each specific problem with full follow through.

When I was faced with making the transition from military life to the civilian sector, I was going through a difficult time. My personal life was falling apart and I wasn't sure how I was going to pick up the pieces. I came in contact with Karl and the folks at GallantFew in November 2011, two months prior to my ETS from the Army. GallantFew was my "Ranger Buddy" throughout this strange time in my life. I have never been connected to so many positive people who want to see nothing more than the best in you. After coming home, I went through periods of family struggle, homelessness and unemployment. During those times, it was always nice to know that I had someone to call and give me guidance, and encouraging words.

I wouldn't be where I am today if it wasn't for this organization.

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.

I have had the honor of rallying Motorcyclist to ride for Gallantfew. In 2012 we raised 1500.00 for Gallantfew. In 2013 we, with the help of Gallantfew, we were able to help a service disabled combat veteran start his own photography business. Gallantfew and Operation Roll Out donated $3000.00 to help this veteran with his dream. Major Karl Monger (U.S. Army Ranger Retired) is truly passionate about our veterans. I am honored to call him my friend and will continue my support for his work for Gallantfew.
