"I saw the very moment he understood. He was not alone." This is what I thought as I talked with this veteran. I saw in his eyes that the desperation and solitude he had been feeling for the past several years, was finally over. After talking with him another few hours, I then drove home. As I was driving, I thought to myself, "The country only lost 21 veterans and first responders today instead of the usual 22."
Vires In Fraternitate
Vires In Fraternitate states, in Latin, that there is "Strength In Brotherhood" It is this very principle, that we all learned while serving, that holds the key to saving our struggling Brothers and Sisters today.
The Heroes Outreach Program is a simple, yet very effective system of gathering places for Military Veterans and first responders to sit, have a hot meal and share with fellow veterans and first responders who understand them. Please explore our pages and see how this program is saving lives every day.
Lake TV at the Lake of the Ozarks area of Missouri selected the Heroes Outreach Program as the Nonprofit of the Month for the month of May 2021. They did a great story about our program and conducted an interview with our Founder, John Morlock. We invite you to view their story.
