Dear Vets4Warriors Community,
At Vets4Warriors, we often speak about the power of connection. It’s not just a jazzy slogan, but rather our stated commitment to support the men and women of our service member and veteran communities – no matter what your situation may be – 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Connection speaks to human nature itself. We are wired to connect with our peers, nature, and those around us. Without these connections, we are often left feeling misunderstood, alone, or without hope. That is why I am so proud of the connections we made over the past year. Our team of peers (all veterans) provided sustained, confidential peer support through over 96,000 contacts this year via phone, chat and e-mail.
By the end of 2022, our team made new connections with over 7,000 veterans, service members, family members and caregivers who reached out for the first time. Each year, in addition to supporting thousands of others who had contacted Vets4Warriors previously, we are supporting thousands of new individuals.
We are forever grateful to our Vets4Warriors supporters, ambassadors, sponsors, and partners. Their steadfast and generous commitment to the Vets4Warriors mission enables more connections and directly impacts the community we serve.
We are also honored to have been featured during the 2022 National Memorial Day Concert on PBS, in the Military Times, numerous podcasts, and as a USAA nonprofit alliance for the 123rd Army-Navy Game.
Please stay tuned for some exciting Vets4Warriors announcements this year. We are looking forward to unveiling new and innovative ways to connect with Vets4Warriors and access our 24/7 peer support.
Until then, remember: Whenever you are faced with a challenge, wherever you are in the world, we will always be there to answer your call. You are never alone.
From all of us at Vets4Warriors, we wish you a safe, happy and healthy New Year.
Major General, U.S. Army (Retired)
