Attacking PTSD One Relationship At A Time

After over a decade of fighting, many soldiers and their families find themselves dealing with the effects of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The statistics related to this are staggering; especially, considering it is not unusual for the affected soldier and/or his family to go untreated.

In conjunction with CrossSword Connection and Crosswinds Foundation, Front Porch Media has produced a new documentary to help educate soldiers, their families, and the general public about  the effects and symptoms of PTSD, some of the treatments being offered, as well as, where to seek needed help. The film opened on May 8 premiering at the Carmike Summit Cinema in Birmingham, AL. Copies of the film are now being made available to our veterans and their families, free of charge.  Simply contact us via the button below and we will gladly follow up with a phone call.  Please don't wait as USVMC-OH stands ready to help.  Please see the short trailer below.

"Keeping a hero's dream alive!"

USVMC OH is on a mission to serve our Hospice Veterans through the challenges they may be facing from illness, isolation or traumatic life experience.  Each Hospice Veteran patient has a unique life story and a unique set of needs.  And when it comes to the needs of America's Veterans, our mission is challenging to say the least.    Operation Valhalla Bound focuses on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgement.  In alignment with the nationally recognized "We Honor Veterans" organization, USVMC OH knows how to accompany and guide America's Veterans and their families through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.  America's Veterans have done everything asked of them in their mission to serve our country and we believe it is never too late to give them a hero's welcome home.    

The USVMC OH Fallen Heroes Fund is established in remembrance of U.S. Armed Forces service members who have given the ultimate sacrifice in defense of Freedom and Democracy for our great Nation.  This program funds scholarships intended to honor their service and to remember that it was their selfless devotion to duty that has enabled us to pursue our goals and dreams.  Recipients of the Scholarship are encouraged to learn about the Fallen Heroes and to work to promote the recognition and memory of these Fallen Heroes within their community.

Funds raised via this program are provided directly to Veteran Scholarship programs that mirrors the integrity and excellence most reflective of our organization.  These tangible donations to military hero scholarship programs ensures scholarship viability and provide a marked difference in the nation that our heroes fought so valiantly to defend.
