How do we treat our female Veterans?

Veterans 2KHeroes Business Scholarship Program

Although accurate numbers are impossible to come by — no one keeps national records on homeless veterans — the VA estimates that 200,00 veterans are homeless on any given night. And approximately twice that many experience homelessness over the course of a year. Conservatively, one out of every three homeless men who is sleeping in a doorway, alley or box in our cities and rural communities has put on a uniform and served this country. According to the National Survey of Homeless Assistance Providers and Clients (U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness and the Urban Institute, 1999), veterans account for 23 percent of all homeless people in America

The Veterans 2KHeroes Foundations believes that teaching our veterans how to fish or by giving them a hand up, will help them long term by providing that missing ingredient which keeps them employed and providing for themselves.

PTSD: 7 Reasons Why Suffering Veterans Aren’t Receiving Proper Help

jschri

1. Lack of Awareness– A portion of the general public are unaware of the disorder and the effect it has on people. The public needs to be further educated on the effects PTSD has on the brain and   the struggles veterans face on a daily basis while living with PTSD.

2. Lack of Desire– About 60 percent of veterans who suffer from PTSD do not seek help. This is due   to a variety of factors such as self-denile, embarrassed, pride, fear of being labeled, and fear of discussing the traumatic situation.

3. VA Hospitals– The VA hospitals are too understaffed to handle the influx of veterans seeking help, therefore leaving many with no where to turn to.

4. Flawed Compensation– The amount of compensation a veteran suffering from PTSD receives is determined by a VA accessor, assessing how impaired they are. They base it off the GAF or Global Assessment…

Suicide Due To Poor Veteran Administration Benefits

Murphy drove to the regional office prepared with a suicide note and a gun. A few minutes before he shot himself, he emailed that note to his siblings. In the email Murphy said, “his arthritis was getting worse,” and he sarcastically“thanked” the VA for not helping him.

The veteran wrote that he, “can no longer afford to pay [his] rent.” Murphy noted he had contacted the New Timespreviously about “homelessness and affordable housing problems in Phoenix.”

The veteran was frustrated…

What Makes a 2KHero?

What is a 2Khero? Or, better, what makes a hero? We all know about the Hollywood heroes … they rush into trouble to save those they love. They risk their lives for others and sometimes lose their own.

Jamie Jarboe  Is self-sacrifice in the face of mortal danger our guide? If so, there are hundreds of thousands of heroes in our military. In fact, just being a soldier, Marine, sailor or in the Air Force would make one a hero. I should add the Coast Guard as well. Maybe that’s the way it should be.

Who do you know who is a Veteran?

We all know someone who is a Veteran.  They don’t look any different… they seem to fit in, laugh at the same jokes, work hard, drive a car, have a job… well… most of them do anyway.  Some of the Veterans we know don’t have jobs… they struggle just like anyone else without a job… but they also have challenges to deal with. Combat caused mental, emotional, physical… It’s not as easy as you would think…

vet fear  You would think that after serving in our Military to protect us and keep us safe from terrorists and laying their life on the line that they would be treated fairly when getting back home… but that isn’t necessarily the case. In fact there are over 1 million military veterans who are without jobs and struggling to get a job to support themselves and their family.

2KonnectKares became aware of their struggle and has created a program to help these HEROs get a job to support themselves instead of living on welfare and losing faith in themselves. We can help!  We have developed the 2kHERO Scholarship Sponsorship Program that helps a veteran get back on their feet.  This program works and we are anxious to help as many veterans as are willing to get a job and make it a career.

2KonnectKares is asking for your help.  Will you help us provide a job for a veteran?  There are 2 ways to help. Donate a little and share this with as many as you can; on facebook, twitter, Linkedin, anywhere.  Even $5  or $20 helps.  The second way is to Sponsor a 2kHERO into the Scholarship program that will help a veteran start their own home business and grow it into a profit for them in just 4 short months.   The system works and we want to help tens of thousands of deserving veterans as we can.  Your support is needed.  Please donate today.

Go to www.Paypal.com and Send us a donation to donate@2konnectkares.org.  We will use these funds to help a veteran get a job that pays well, gets them off welfare and brings pride in a job well done.
