Raised by 8 people in 37 months
I am a medically retired army combat veteran. I was approved for vocational rehabilitation thru the department of veterans affairs to start dive training on April 12th and the cost of that training equipment was paid by other veterans on a previous gofundme campaign. I am raising money for a Faith based non traditional not for profit. Helping veterans and their families whoms their injured warrior was wounded overseas defending our way of life. I do not want help from the government, I want this to be for the veterans with PTSD and other injuries straight from our fellow Americans. The mission is to provide housing, meals, scuba certification and job placment completely free from charge. To make a real impact one the veteran suicide rate in America.  407-907-0944 call for any questions

Hello brothers and sisters. My name is Anthony Cusimano. United States Army Combat Vet, medically retired out due to injuries sustained while i was deployed. I have created this not only to better support my wife and kids but mainly to help my battle buddies that where injured while serving FREE FROM CHARGE through scuba diving till the end of my days. Studies from John Hopkins have shown and proven the benefits of scuba diving for veterans afflicted with PTSD, paralyzed or amputated limbs. I am using my post 9/11 GI bill to cover the cost of the training and certifications but the GI bill does not cover the equipment required to complete my mission and work independently to help my brothers every week till i die. To many of our service men from all branches are committing suicide due to PTSD and to many of us don't have the ability to move from their wheelchairs. Under water, this dose not matter. Please help me reach my goal by covering the cost of the equipment and then friend me on facebook where I will post pictures and videos of every wounded warriors that i take diving. This is my dream. Big non profit organizations that do this are stretched so very thin but as a Veteran myself that has lived through the thick of the thick. I know first hand what it takes to help my brother's and sisters. Thank you
