Mission 22 - America's Mission
Every day in America, we lose over 20 veterans to suicide.
Mission 22 is a Non-Profit organization who's mission is to end the stigma surrounding PTSD and Traumatic Brain Injury and get our veterans the treatment options they want and deserve.
Mission 22 was founded by Special Forces operators Magnus Johnson, and Mike Kissel and Infantryman Brad Hubbard. Because of their personal battles with PTSD and TBI they have made it their mission to raise awareness, enlist support, and end veteran suicide in America.
Mission 22 has three major programs: 1. Funding treatment for Post Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury and other issues veterans face 2. Creating large-scale public memorials to honor veterans 3. Bringing awareness to the issues veterans are facing today
We decided to choose Mission 22 as our charity of the quarter because there is a large population of veterans who suffer from mental illness after returning home. Our veterans have dedicated their lives ensuring that we live a safe life, and this is a small way we can show our appreciation.
