Many service men and women who are either transitioning or have transitioned out of their critical roles in the United States Armed Forces, coming home from a deployment, or have questions and concerns while they are still serving, find themselves in situations of uncertainty or out of their control. Today, there is also a rising trend of alcoholism, drug abuse, crime, and suicide rates among those who serve or have served. Together, we can combat these issues. Vet Life was founded as a not-for-profit organization in 2016 by two combat veterans. We founded this organization because we understand the obstacles veterans face during and after their faithful service to our country. We want you to know you are not alone and we are here to assist.
To provide veterans with a brand that not only identifies them with fellow veterans, but to aid and assist with the various Veteran Service Organizations that exist to help veterans today.
Vet Life focuses on becoming the link needed to assist military veterans in whatever they may be going through. Vet Life seeks to partner with other military veteran organizations and services such as legal, counseling, leisure activities (fishing, hiking, skiing, sporting events), and fundraising.
Our Veteran Coordinators are ready and equipped as certified Master Resiliency Trainers, Applied Suicide Intervention, Sexual Assault Advocate, and Military Family Program Coordinators. We also function as liaisons linking veterans to services and resources in New England with a goal of expanding even further out.
We want to build a coalition of Veterans that help and assist each other. Some of the services we offer are:
In 2013, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 veterans were dying by suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes. Some sources suggest that this rate may be actually greater from a lack of suicide reporting. Let's help put an end to this. We must never leave a fallen comrade!
Number of Veterans as of 2014
Percent of Americans Who Have Served in the Military
Those that have defended or continue to defend the freedom of Americans at home and abroad deserve opportunities to walk through new doors, explore leisure activities, and create a better life for themselves and their families. Vet Life exists in becoming that link, providing various services for our heroes. We offer fundraising activities to help veterans in need. We assist with the planning of life after transition. We provide outreach for the health and wellness of veterans. We even offer programs to help veterans get away from the every day grind of life. Take part in a fishing trip to Cape Cod, or a weekend of camping and hiking with other veterans. The life of the military veteran is important to us and our goal is to simply make life better for them.
"We are all Veterans, lets face life together."
We've been working with veterans as service members and as veterans ourselves. We have taken part in events through Wounded Warrior and have begun to build networks with other veterans through different programs. We have helped Soldiers in the past with counseling and financial issues, divorce and relationship problems, and even UCMJ related issues.
