HonorVet.org is a New York based 501(c)(3 ) non-profit and non-partisan, national organization dedicated to building a Next Generation Community that helps Veterans, Service Members and their loved ones by:
HonorVet.org was co-founded by two US Marines, Jesse Canella and Jim McCain, who served together in the Al Anbar Province of Iraq. Like so many other of America's returning young Veterans, they found the transition back to civilian life to be very difficult. More profoundly, they saw friends who made it through the toughest battle zones succumb to this hidden battle at home. The numbers are stark.
Beyond mental health issues such as PTSD, many Veterans simply have a hard time re-focusing their lives on civilian life and careers. They are challenged to translate and present their skills to employers. Without the structure that military life provided, many are unable to get on a healthy track of diet, health, wellness and spiritual sustenance. All of these issues contribute greatly to the high rates of unemployment, depression and suicide that are afflicting America's very best citizens. We decided to do something about it.
