PLEASE DONATE TO OUR ANNUAL FUND DRIVE to support our Veterans 24/7 SUICIDE REFERRAL HOTLINE!    The number of Veterans receiving specialized mental health treatment has risen each year, from 927,052 in 2006 to more than 1.3 million Veterans receiving mental health treatment in 2014. We receive 5-6 telephone calls an average month from Veterans in distress!  Special thanks to The K Foundation (2015), The Chrysler Foundation (2014), and The Longview Foundation (2013,  2014 and 2015) for their grants to support our projects.   We also have a friendly "Grandma" brigade of volunteers who will talk regularly to lonely Veterans and a Chaplain on board.  LETS HELP OUR VETERANS WHO HAVE GIVEN SO MUCH FOR US!    We are a non-profit organization improving the lives of severely injured U.S. Veterans who have given limbs in service to our country and are the victims of land mines and serious attacks in Iraq and Afghanistan. Combat gear and front-line medicine have advanced vastly in recent years to help our troops, and many more are surviving injuries that would have killed them in past wars and conflicts. This is certainly good news, but it presents long-term, lifelong challenges for our present day war survivors. Quality of life, mobility, employment options and lifespan are often limited much more than hoped.  Spouses, family members, and friends must attempt to adjust to the problems brought home by our injured veterans.  Our injured veterans deal with post-traumatic stress disorder (PSTD), injuries to the neck, back and spine, disfiguration, traumatic brain injury, and more. It is estimated that 19% of our 1.8 million men and women who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan (320,000) may have experienced a traumatic brain injury during deployment, according to the Rand corporation.   Help The Vets, Inc. is incorporated as a non-profit organization,  registered in all of the 39 States which require registration and with a national board of directors to assist injured veterans in ways not provided by the US Department of Veterans Affairs.  
US Congressman Webster (standing left, at attention) met with Help The Vets CPT Neil Paulson at a fundraiser and pledged his support for Veteran Groups and Veterans Rights.  Congressman Webster has discussed a Congressional Charter for Help The Vets, Inc. Originally a Heating and Air Conditioning contractor, Webster knows what its like to do physical labor and make an honest living. He originally became active in local government over a zoning issue that prevented his church from getting a permit.  He ran for Congress only upon urging by his family and friends. Congressman Webster said "I am what I am today due to what other people have invested in my life."  Help our Vets and invest in the lives of severely disabled service members who have given unselfishly of themselves for our country!  
US CONGRESSMAN JOHN MICA says "Community-Based Veterans Groups are doing an AWESOME job!"  
At a recent Veterans' Day benefit, Congressman Mica met with Help The Vets CPT Paulson and applauded what is being done for service Veterans because Washington D.C. is unable to help everyone.  "Government doesn't have enough taxpayer money do everything for everyone and we need many good people in partnership to volunteer and step up and help the veterans who have given so much for our Country!"   Congressman Mica praised our 24/7 Suicide Prevention Hotline which is providing emergency counselling and referral help for veterans facing PTSD and personal crisis. We are also providing allopathic medical treatment through supporting physicians for veterans with medical problems not covered by the Veterans Administration.
“Its now four years since I lay in the dirt, near death, on the side of the road in Fallujah. I’m grateful for all the things I have, and proud of all I’ve accomplished. In the end though, I don’t measure how far I’ve come by goals achieved, or academic degrees earned, or running trophies won. For me, what counts is that pain no longer rules my life.”

"Thank you for providing me with a voucher to get a care voucher with Dr. Bourst which I could not get through the VA system.  I am not 100% disabled so the VA does not provide any chiropractic treatment. My back had been killing me for a long time. I really like Dr. Bourst and was very impressed with her clinc."  
_ Karyn Rinaldi, Retired Navy Officer.
"Thanks for sending me a donated certificate for a hotel stay in So. Florida to recover after brain surgery for an aneurysm."
