Our young transitioning veterans need your support. Tens of thousands of them are unemployed, underemployed, homeless, in support programs or despondent. Sadly, veteran suicide levels are at their highest point since WWII, with 22 or more veterans taking their own lives each and every day.With your support, Veterans 360 will invite young transitioning veterans into an on-going program of engagement, education, employment, and healing. Upon graduation, we will set them on the path to a productive future with continued health, wellness, education and placement support.
“No one told them combat was easy. We need to stop telling them that civilian life is.”

Veterans 360 advocates an education versus cure approach to these problems. Asking for help is not a sign of weakness or an inability to cope. It is a sign of strength. Veterans are much more formidable when they are better educated and trained in how to deal with adversity.
No matter your political affiliation or social class, we invite you to join our movement to reverse this trend of despondency and struggle in our young transitioning veterans.

At first, he said, he was too ashamed to admit that he struggled with the issue, but he eventually sought help.

Vets 360 is glad to support Doc One by getting the word out about his book “8404 Rivers of Babylon”. Writing about his experiences and healing process has been very therapeutic for him, reading about his experiences can be very therapeutic to other veterans.
