Veterans Day - Suicide Awareness

There are at least 24 Veteran Suicides Every Day

We think the number is more likely 24-25 Veterans a day.  That is over 9,000 former service members each year we are losing to Veteran suicides. And the rate of active-duty suicides has increased over the last five years.

These men and women volunteered and fought for our freedom.  They are not getting the services they need after returning home from war.  We can and should do better by them.

The Lifeline for Vets, in operation since 1985, is staffed by trained fellow Veterans.

Tiny home community could bring shelter, support, employment to veterans in Orange County

Rachel Ettlinger | Oct 19, 2020 | Times Herald-Record

Rumshock Veterans Foundation, a nonprofit founded in February 2019 to provide military members with post-service support, received $400,000 that was secured and announced by New York state Sen. Jen Metzger’s office at a news conference Tuesday at the Greenwood Lake Elks Lodge 2067. That funding will go toward purchasing land and eventually breaking ground to make the estimated $3 million project, Victory Village, a reality.

A Sustainable Community for Veterans with Five Important  Components…
There is no way to adequately thank the men and women who sacrificed so much for our freedom and safety. But we can offer them a second chance – an opportunity to be successful members of a supportive community! The staff and volunteers at Rumshock Veterans Foundation are working to do all we can to offer veterans the opportunity to improve their physical, mental, and emotional health as well as reconnect with society through meaningful activities. There are five components to the Foundation’s sustainable program: 1) Rumshock Village, a tiny residential community of affordable housing for veterans; 2) Hydroponic Farming, maintained by Village residents; 3) Victory Transportation, to assist Village residents in making appointments to healthcare providers and other necessities; 4) E-Waste Recycling, involving the recovery of materials to be used in future production; and 5) Canine Companionship, for needed emotional support.
