I started working with GallantFew in late 2011. I liked the message and the methodology of small patrol leaders within the community and really being a grassroots organization; Veterans helping Veterans and encouraging the social aspect of transition.
I’ve not only met lifelong friends along the way, but I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to be the guy that some of our brothers and sisters reach out to, sending up that “red star cluster”.
What GallantFew does, reinforces the team or family that we think we’ve moved from. When a call comes in, it’s complete collective action with a focused point of employment. And it works. Whether it’s a, “I need a job..”, or “I’m thinking about suicide…” or a “Hey man, I’ve got a question” call; we have one focus and that’s on the Veteran and the issue at hand. Then we expand our net to address other concerns or ways to chart a better course.
Reach out, get involved. I think you’ll be surprised at how many are around you and you don’t realize it yet.
We take care of our own and for no other reason than it’s who we are.
That’s why I am GallantFew.
