HELPING OUR NEIGHBORS OVERCOME & REBUILD

“Amidst the growing concern over the suicide rate (22 per day), there are more veterans who don’t elect to kill themselves, but to self-medicate and deal with the traumas of war in ways that cause them to lose their freedom …these imprisoned casualties have been entirely forgotten. It is as if they are dead, while still alive.”

The Triumph Program and Healing of our Forgotten Heroes

Here in prison, I am surrounded by men who are broken and like myself have been cast away because of their sins and the needs to be met are endless.  I thank God after all I have been through over the past decade.  My love for my country and the desire to help her prosper has not waned, but, like so many of you all, it still burns bright. While I may never blow another door, clear another corner, or fire another round in defense of my country, my life does not have to be in vain.  I can continue to serve my country from inside these walls, pouring into her incarcerated fathers and sons and uncles and brothers, seeking to build them up to be assets to their communities when they are released.

Veterans are losing their freedom because of defending ours.

A Congratulatory Message from Congressman Brady

Mission

To see veterans recognized and supported while in prison and then succeed in life upon release as high functioning members of society with the knowledge and skills needed to thrive as they move forward with purpose and meaning. 

Vision 

To cultivate a pluralistic community within prison where veterans can become servant-leaders, mentoring inmates from differing faiths, ethnicities and creeds to pool their knowledge and use their individual skills for the building up of the whole.  This environment will encourage a sense of community, reflect the reality of positive change and serve as a bridge for restoring inmates back to their families and society.

Our Forgotten Heroes

8% of all prisoners in the U.S. are veterans and more than half are there due to mental health issues such as PTSD or subtance abuse.

The workbook helps veterans evolve as they process the tragedies and losses they have suffered and gradually look forward, finding purpose in life, setting goals, and exploring who they can serve with the abilities they have gained as a result of their military-experiences.
