i have been involved in Gallant Few’s Run Ranger Run event for the past few years as a participant, fundraiser, coordinator, and community ambassador. Their events and the transition support network they are building are truly unique and impactful for Veterans since it creates close knit communities based in shared experiences that can help each other in the transition process and beyond. I have seen first hand the positive impact Gallant Few has had in Vet’s lives and will continue to support their hard-working organization and programs.

A good friend told me about this group and I had to check it out. I was able to speak with Karl and Zach and they invited me to come rock climbing with them. I have greatly enjoyed being able to interact with other veterans on a regular basis. It's not so much that we can sit and talk about past experiences, it's more just being around people that have common experiences. I look forward to climbing with the group on a regular basis and getting to know more people in the awesome organization.

I have been a volunteer with GallantFew, more specifically Run Ranger Run, for the past 7 years. I dedicate my time to this amazing organization because I know they stand by and fulfill their mission of serving Veterans in need. As an Army Spouse it is extremely important to me GallantFew is able to serve and support Veterans facing challenges during their transition from active to civilian life. I know my efforts to support this nonprofit are helping to make a difference and, in turn, allowing them to make a difference in the Veteran community.

I first heard about GallantFew on a chance interaction with Karl Monger at Metroport Rotary Club. In our first introduction, I knew this man was a dynamic individual who had more to share. We ended up going to lunch and sharing our story with each other and I was blown away by the heart this man has for transforming veterans lives. As our friendship grew he invited me to participate in the VetXpo and through the last 6 months I have begun to understand the impact GallantFew is having on our veteran communities throughout the world. I once heard a statement that says "you never know how far reaching what you think say or do today will effect the lives of millions tomorrow" and I am pretty sure that sums up the effort Karl and his team have implemented with GallantFew

More than 3 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. Karl has also 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
3+ years and fully support him and GallantFew as a GREAT NON-PROFIT worthy of
any and all Accolades, Rewards and Honors associated therewith.

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

"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"

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This has got to be the best non-profit that I've seen out there for Veterans! It's veteran led, has clear direction and is not just an employment service. Best of all, it's not in it for the money.

After months of suffering during my transition both professionally and personally, I decided that I needed to get back in the game. I wasn't happy at work because I wasn't being challenged and I had lost that comaraderie that I had in the Army. And the saying, "If you're happy at home, then you'll be happy at work and vis-a-versa" was taking me on a rollercoaster ride. I felt stuck and stagnant.

By getting involved with the organization, I feel like myself again.

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!

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.

Real differences, one soldier at a time.

AFter watching an insightful and heart-warming introduction to some vounteers of Gallant Few and some brave and truly gallant veterans on a filmed interview, I corresponded with the contact person of The Gallant Few, Karl Monger at their web address. As a nonmilitary citizen I have had much difficulty being able to find ways to show my appreciation to military personnel and their families in a concrete way.
With energy and enthusiasm Karl immediately responded and patiently assisted me in joining the Gallant Few as a volunteer via internet. He has assisted me in accessing volunteers in other states as I make plans to establish a monthly local networking event for veterans here in my home state, CT. This event can be reviewed at the Gallantfew.org under the heading First Saturdays and I am happy to say that I am meeting a general manager at a family owned restaurant in Groton CT tomorrow!
There are many earnest and well intentioned persons who would like to be supportive change agents for our military heroes and I can vouchsake that the Gallant Few is definately one which is making a positive difference. I was glad to become a volunteer because when an organization can do great things with a limited budget...then that organization has shown itself as a strong foundation for me to invest my time and energies in.

Co. 1/75th Ranger, and knowing full well the challenges and struggles our returning veterans face, I can attest to the fine work Karl Monger, Michael Schlitz, Tim Abell and the rest of the Gallant Few organization so unselfishly provides. To offer a healing hand to our returning veterans who have given so much and asked for so little in return brings great credit on Gallant Few, their mission statement, and our Great Nation as a whole. I urge all Americans to take the time to reflect upon what our Freedom is worth, and what it continually costs our veterans on a daily basis.

I served with B Co. 1/75 from 1992-1994 while Ranger Karl Monger was the S3/Operations Officer for the 1st Ranger Battalion.

I came across Karl again last year through a mutual friend and when he told me about Gallant Few and it's mission I knew this was something I had to be a part of.

I left active duty rather suddenly after a service-connected injury and although my transition worked out fine I sure could have used Gallant Few and the mentorship that's offered. I'm NOT a combat veteran and I don't face any issues as a result of having served in combat, but I'd do whatever I could for one of my brothers that does.

Serving in the Army is noble and honorable but I've never experienced or witnessed a bond between individuals that may have never even met each other before like I have within the Ranger Regiment community and Gallant Few takes that bond even further.

If my efforts are enough to make a difference in just one Rangers life, than it makes it all worth it.

They have taken a simple idea, that has become complex and made it work. The network overall has been uplifting not only for myself, but others that I see. Mentoring younger Rangers and others in the SOF community, Karl has helped them get jobs, start a business, connect old friends, helped some navigate the very confusing VA system and kept the proud tradition of taking care of those who have borne the brunt of war.

It's not easy to transition from the military back into working, functioning even socializing back into civilian life. Who has seen the horrors that only service can so graciously provide. Who can understand the overwhelming desire to need to be doing something to help make a difference.

When these men and women come home, there is no ticker tape parades, no celebrations for their service, if they come home at all. Navigating your way through the overwhelming paperwork, processing through the Veterans Administration that takes 15 years to get through your claim, having to network to succeed, can at times, for even the most seasoned veteran, be overwhelming.

Having organizations like Gallantfew.org setup to help transitioning veterans, for myself personally has made all the difference, in my ability to find gainful employment. I was lost in the maze of overwhelming government agencies, all telling me incorrect information, without a fellow Ranger buddy as I have always had to guide me through the process.

The Army didn't issue me gear and say "Ok son, good luck, don't get shot" they issued me to a Sergeant, who signed for my life, and had to make a promise to my mother to keep me safe, which haunted him he later told me my entire enlistment. Why should any vet have to leave the service and be treated as I was sadly treated in 1995.

One guide sheet from Ranger Karl Monger, upholding the Ranger standard with helping answer any questions I had along the way, not only giving me simple to follow instruction, with the actual websites directly posted in the order needed to get through.

All FREE, yes read that again, ok Ill write it again, FREE hasn't cost me a dime yet, and so far has saved me $985.00 just alone in online fees.

The processing that I can now get done with my company, has allowed the company to go from stagnant, to opening its first communication with a real potential commercial client, as well within three months will be eligible and bidding on Government Contracts.

Six years of my time has been stalled, because I just found this organization. There isn't enough money or gratitude I could pay back to Ranger Karl Monger or Ranger Tim Abell who introduced me to Karl, my Ranger buddy that had my back.

It is nice for people to tell us they appreciate our service, it feels good, that doesn't feed children, allow for families to live and support their needs. What these veterans have made available to me, will in turn support hundreds of military families, both active and retired. It will allow me to hire veterans for long term careers.

If you haven't visited the Gallantfew.org website, please, I ask you on behalf of the seventeen Rangers I buried during my time in service 1992-1995, ask that you just donate one dollar for each of them.

$17.00 to honor the men who gave the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, tell them Ranger Baer sent you.

Godspeed.

Retired Honorably 90% disabled veteran of the 1st 75th Rangers 1992-1995 Bco 1st platoon. If you ever need someone to reach out to, look me up, don't hesitate to call, write, gripe, or send good news.

We all have been where you are about to walk. It takes a proud man to serve his country, honor his family, by risking his life; it takes a smart man, to swallow that pride, reach out for help, before taking yourself down a road, there is no coming back from.

You don't have to walk that road alone, we know, we've been there. Yes, everyone of us, truly understands. Let us teach you now how to move on.

Something I wrote in a letter home to my loved one in 1993 after we lost our Colonel, his RTO, 10 other soldiers that day, just in case I myself didn't survive;

"Live to honor those we lost, prove their sacrifice was worth the cost. Live to give children someone in this world, still left worth looking up to, when they get old. The men that gave their life today, lived better than any I have seen in life, if I shall meet an early grave, at least I can say I've lived today. "

Gallentfew has provided me with both general and specific advise, networking opportunities and transitioning Veteran resources that set my expectations during this process.

Truly an organization of great people, doing great things for the very best reasons.

Excellent array of practical advice. I can see u will use this in my efforts to advance adaptive sports and innovative therapies. Having organized an nfp lately for related needs, I appreciate what Gallant Few has done so far. They will get my support.
