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The efforts by GallantFew superseded my expectations and even imagination.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 participated in Run Ranger Run event to help raise public awareness about the struggles facing soldiers while transitioning out of the military. This organization is great and has helped on a personal level too.
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.
Karl has helped me since the day I transitioned out of the army and with my future plans. I couldn't ask for greater help, a friend, and mentor in these regards. Thank you for everything you've done Karl.
