When you hear the term “veteran” most people immediately think of those who have served in the military. While that is true, the word veteran also identifies those who have served our Nation as law enforcement and fire and rescue professionals. Collectively, these groups of heroes ensure our country is safeguarded both here at home and abroad. There is a true sense of comradery when you put military veterans and first responders in the same room…together, they become America’s 9-1-1 Force!
Despite the sacrifices of America’s 9-1-1 Force, this special group of citizens aren’t looking for special treatment or a hand-out…instead, they are looking for a “hand-up” – they want to be a part of their community, and continue to lead productive lives. There is not a shortage of support in this country for our veterans, first responders and their families; the issue has always been “how do we connect” those in need, to those who can provide the needed support?
The Vets on Track Foundation is providing carefully designed programs that will help bridge this critical gap. From bringing resources and veterans together through our Resource Summit Program, to helping those transitioning from the streets into permanent housing through our Fresh Start Program…to us it’s all about the veterans, first responders and their families. We are working diligently at the grass-roots level with organizations all across the country to help those we serve get the support they need to get their lives “back on track.”
Our programs are administered through our “Drive 4 Vets” Community Outreach Programs, and aren’t geared for only a select few – we cater to ALL veterans…no matter what public service uniform they wear. By working together, we have the capability to address the issues facing their lives… one-on-one! We may not be able to change laws that could better address concerns for our future veterans or first responders; but today, we can change lives, and increase awareness all across the Nation.
For years to come, America’s 9-1-1 Force and their families will continue to face unique challenges, but at the same time will have great potential to continue contributing to their community and country. As a Nation it is important that we all do our part to understand their perspective and offer a helping hand when and where we can…they put their lives on the line for each of us!
