Who Are We?
United Warrior Services began as a group of Veterans raising money for local therapy Programs to honor our brother that took his own life in 2015.
We had no idea what we were doing would become something more.
Later, as we lost more and more friends and family to suicide, what began as a group of friends working together to make a small difference, became the motivating force behind everything UWS has done to date.
Originally, 3 Veterans and friends came together to form UWS. We could not stand idly by while every day more and more of our family were lost. Taking action has not been easy, but luckily we have found support both from the original fundraising group, other Veterans, and the community at large.
Nothing is going to stop us until we are able to say the epidemic is over and the number of Veterans taking their own lives due to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), living situation, hunger, homelessness, or just plain depression is at ZERO.
