After ten years, Veteran Warriors has discovered that most of the issues a veteran or their family-member have difficulty with is finding and understanding what benefits and services the veteran has earned, by their selfless service to our great nation. With that in mind, we restructured what we do and how we do it.

As the saying goes, "It takes team work to make the dream work!"; and we want to bring our training teams to the veterans across the nation. By conducting educational seminars that are FREE to the veteran or their caregiver, we can empower each of them with the knowledge and understanding they need to navigate the massive array of benefits, services and resources that are available.

With over 10,000 registered Veterans' Service Organizations and Advocates in the nation, blindly searching for those that a veteran qualifies for is the most daunting part of a veteran's life, and it is our goal to implement our conferences nationwide so that a veteran and their caregiver can focus on recovery, reintegration and learning their "new normal".

Obviously, we recognize that this is a monumental undertaking and do not do so lightly. We know we have other advocates and supporters who will always be available to mentor, guide and encourage us along the way. Although even with the amazing support network WE have, there are still expenses that we must cover in order to conduct these training missions.

That is where YOU,  our wonderful members and supporters come in!!! If each of our nearly 5,000 members donated $1.50 (yes...that is all we need if each of you donated!!!), we can do at least 6 seminars this year!!! 

Can you just imagine what we can do if each person donated just $5.00 (less than a Venti Latte!!!) ?!?!?!  

Will you help us? Will you help all veterans, regardless of age, gender, branch or era of service; get ALL the benefits and services they have earned?!

Dear Generous Donators,

This message is not personalized, but it is being sent with all sincerity. We at Veteran Warriors have spent 10 years working to help veterans and their families, obtain and retain the benefits and services they earned, from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Not a single day goes by, wherein we do not provide some form of resource referral, policy guidance or hands-on case management for our nations’ heroes.

During our entire 10-year history, not a single penny ever raised has gone to an employee or board member. We do not use donated funds to have lavish events or pay for pricing travel. Every employee and board member contribute their time and their own money; to keeping the mission going forward. This includes necessary but expensive travel to our nations’ capital; to meet with legislators, their staff and VA leadership, in order to give voice to the needs of those they have pledged to serve.

In March, we launched a new campaign titled “The Face of the Caregiver”; to highlight those who are the vital support network of our veterans. As part of that campaign, we developed a training program for the Caregivers; in which they will be educated on how to navigate the VA’s multiple programs, introduced to private-sector programs and given the tools they need to fully manage their veteran’s care and needs. We had planned to provide these training programs for free to the caregivers and were slowly raising the funds to set up a national schedule of training sessions. It is slow-going, as most “charitable” dollars are typically earmarked for the large nonprofits.

Last Tuesday, YOU and Dennis Michael Lynch changed all of that! Dennis and the founder of Veteran Warriors, Lauren Price, have been friends for years and collaborated on a few projects in the past. Being like-minded, they both share a passion for our nation, our veterans and all those who are willing to make dedicated commitments to keeping our nation free. For several weeks, they have discussed doing podcasts together; to bring to the American public, the real stories on how the VA is functioning (or not). YOU and thousands of other of Dennis’ supporters heard what we hope to be the first of many podcasts with Dennis and YOU did what no one could have anticipated…you offered your hard-earned money to help Veteran Warriors continue its mission and demanded nothing in return.

There are no words to express our how deeply your gratitude has affected us. Each team and board member are shocked and humbled by the overwhelming support, words of encouragement and genuine support we have received.

We held a telephonic board meeting yesterday and several decisions were made about the donated funds; because as stated above, we have a project we are hoping to get off the ground. We decided to immediately set up the training sessions for the rest of this year. There will be one per month, in locations across the country; and one per month held using internet-based video conferencing for those who cannot attend the in-person events. Solely because of your generous support, we can do this and “jump off the cliff” to schedule 12 events, without having the financial consideration being the driving force of them.

In closing, every member of Veteran Warriors is indebted to you for your generosity and compassion.
Thank you on behalf of veterans across the nation, their families and Veteran Warriors!

With kindest regards,
YN1 Lauren Price, (Ret.)
Founder and Managing Director
Veteran Warriors, Inc.
