About The VFW-Warfighter Advance PTSD Event
This Benefit is a joint benefit between Warfighter Advance and District 11 Wisconsin Department of VFW to stop our 20 comrades who are committing suicide each day due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The purpose behind this activity is to raise monies for veterans and their families suffering from PTSD and will be used strictly for those veterans and military personnel suffering from PTSD.
Our comrades, who are suffering from PTSD or contemplating suicide will attend the Warfighter Advance 7-day training at Lions Camp Merrick in Patuxent River Maryland completely free to the veteran and/or military personnel. This includes the $1,850 per warfighter Advance 7-day cost, all costs for the 7 days; food, lodging, all transportation to and from their home to Lions Camp Merrick, etc.
Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States (VFW) is the second largest veterans organization and largest combat veteran organization that provides support to our veterans, active-military personnel and reservists with a wide range of assistance in their support whether it be emergency financial needs, housing, post-secondary education, VA medical and benefit claims for them and their families. When one of our comrades is suffering from PTSD it also affects their family and they may need treatment or counseling. This is when the PTSD Benefit Committee and VFW would seek out the very best professional or program in the area, by looking at the hospital, agent, individual, etc. their past record and success ratio.
