Review for The Soldiers Project , North Hollywood, CA, USA
As a close family member of an Army Platoon SSgt who has served in infantry in both Iraq and Afghanistan, I had concerns about PTSD and mental health availability for both the soldiers and the family members of soldiers returning from deployment. When I decided to volunteer with a not for profit with focus on individuals who had served in the military and their families, I looked around and tried to find a program that worked directly with helping returning soldiers live the best lives possible. I even went as far as visiting The Soldiers Project office in LA while I was on a business trip, just to see the group up close and personal. I volunteered because I believe in the cause and I have had a good experience with the genuine care exhibited by the volunteers and staff that I have met I really like the work that I do, which is personally reaching out to Active Duty and Veterans Organizations. There is much acknowledgement in the military community of the need for mental health that is free and serves any veteran post 9/11 regardless of discharge status. I am generally met with open arms when I visit military bases and Veteran Centers.In the cases where there has been lots of questions , its generally because The Soldiers Project "seems too good to be true". The Soldiers Project is the real thing and I am proud to be a part of this organization.
