Disabled Veterans Reach to the Sky
We want to enrich their lives with healing activities that provide a therapeutic experience. Many of these veterans experience symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and/or Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). This increases the incidents of depression, physical injuries, substance abuse and sleep problems.
* We will work with AAAP to start a new hospitalized Veterans amateur astronomy club at their facility, to have “Star Parties” at the VA facility, as well as at both of AAAP’s existing state-of-the-art observatories; Mingo Creek and Wagman.
*We will erect an observatory building with a movable roof to house the telescope.
* We will purchase a telescope with a digital camera and software.
* We will provide the platform necessary for the telescope, making it accessible to veterans, regardless of physical limitation.
* Also, we will install the technology and training to make images of the telescope available for Veterans on computers, based inside the hospital.
We want to get this observatory completed before 2019 with your help. Thank you for your support of this worthwhile cause.
Please be mindful of the Disabled Veterans of all service branches who we are going to help with our GoFundMe project: Disabled Veterans Reach to the Sky.
When completed, a fully functional digital telescope will be at their disposal to view the evening skyline in all its brilliance. Just what these veterans are yearning to do. Please donate big or small knowing your donation is going to a very worthwhile cause...our disabled veterans! To donate type the words
