“This nation will remain the land of the free only so long as it is the home of the brave.” [1]

— Elmer Davis
Office of War Information Director, WWII



Every November 11th our country stands in support of our troops, and so this month at CharitySub we are working to support our veterans as they adjust to civilian life. Some of the hardest hitting issues that affect veterans are homelessness, disability

and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). These problems are compounded because many veterans are not getting the extra support they need, like substance abuse counseling, skills training, or assistance with a new disability.

  • In 2011, EACH NIGHT 67,000 veterans slept on the streets, in a shelter or in transitional housing. [2]
  • 300,000 veterans suffer from major depression. [3]
  • 320,000 veterans have experienced traumatic brain injury. [3]

  • Substance abuse among veterans has increased by 53% since 2003. [3]
Quick Facts
An Estimated 500,000 Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans have symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder. [4]

Diagnostic symptoms for PTSD include:

  • Re-experiencing the original trauma(s) through flashbacks or nightmares
  • Avoidance of stimuli associated with the trauma
  • Increased arousal, such as difficulty falling or staying asleep, anger, and hypervigilance

In honor of Veterans Day, this month’s CharitySub partners give our heroes a little extra help. Make your selection today, and let’s work together to give our Veterans the added support they need!
