GallantFew had its beginning in 2004 in a loose collection of Rangers, networked together in a LinkedIn group. We helped each other through transitions, watched with pride our brothers in the Ranger Regiment carrying the fight to the enemy and organized to help transitioning to civilian life.
In 2009 I saw a video where then Secretary of the VA Shinseki stated that 18 veterans took their own lives every day. I was dumbfounded and swore that our network of a thousand Rangers would take action to prevent Ranger suicides.
GallantFew became a nonprofit the following year, and the original network of a thousand Rangers numbers five times that, and we have pledged to help any veteran of any branch of the service to the extent of our capacity and abilities. This would not have become possible without the contributions of hundreds of people, some veterans, some Rangers, some civilians. It has become bigger than each of us, yet the core building block of who we are is that one-on-one connection.
Together we’ll make the GallantFew to become the gallant many.
I am GallantFew.
