This organization has helped me in numerous ways. I’ve had the opportunity to apply for multiple programs including Equine Therapy with Ms. Margaret and Denise. The ability to look beyond my own issues and move forward with the positive outlook I’m being taught to rebuild is worth a testimonial of my experience. I hope for other women to trust their intentions. Their team including Dr. Abney are ready to support your journey.

Prior to the existence of The Pink Berets, I was asked by our now CEO Stephanie Gattas, if I felt there was a need for such a organization? My answer to her was an empathetic "Yes! Absolutely. There is a huge need for such an organization geared to our women veterans!"

As a 27 year female Air Force veteran who is still currently serving, I have seen first-hand that our female veterans are dealing with PTSD, MST, TBI and other issues. I see that we have needed and will continue to need the services offered by the Pink Berets. As a member, I know this organization can help with special programs tailored to fit the needs of our women. I personally deal with PTSD and have experienced MS, so it is a reality. However, with The Pink Berets and the programs offered, no one has to suffer silently!

There are not very many organizations for woman, but as our numbers grow, the Pink Berets has forged a path of support to our gals who serve and have served! One of the most important points to be aware of is that all of our services are offered at no cost to the veteran!

I am honored and proud to sit on the Board of such an amazing organization as the Pink Berets. I am humbled at how much energy, work, planning and selflessness is dedicated to the Pink Berets on a daily basis by the volunteers.

The Pink Berets are not only providing help via individual and group therapy, but we also have equine therapy, cooking therapy, offer healing retreats and various other phenomenal programs geared towards healing and recovery. There are also programs such a "Troops to Suits," in which we are providing skills and education to help our women help themselves and their families. Again, cost is not an issue, and no one will be turned away!

The best and most amazing thing is that our organization is made up of selfless volunteers who have the desire and empathy to provide help, aid, and relief to our women veterans who can heal, grow and benefit from our programs. Our volunteers are truly making a difference.

I highly recommend the Pink Berets to your female veteran family and friends who may need help and healing! Please visit our website,

The Pink Berets is an exceptional nonprofit tackling a very large need. Women in the military face the same challenges as their fellow military men do, but often internalize it differently. TPB recognizes the need to counsel and support the unique needs of our military women. Stephanie, the founder and CEO, is able to apply her own military experiences through her passion in helping her fellow comrades, helping these women to transition back into life, to be the best women they can be.

My experience with the Pink Berets was truly inspirational. I attended their Women Warriors on water event. It was a chance to experience a fishing expedition with my fellow veteran sisters that I normally would not have had the chance to do. I look forward to attending many other events that The Pink Berets will host in the future.
