Stop Soldier Suicide

Stop Soldier Suicide was founded by U.S. Army veterans Brian Kinsella, Nick Black, and Craig Gridelli in 2010 amid the worst suicide crisis our military has ever seen.

What we do

Stop Soldier Suicide empowers the military community by providing free resources and support to all past and present military and their families through an established, comprehensive, trusted network of individuals and organizations that meet the complex needs of the military community and are capable of anticipating and mitigating suicide risk factors, promoting resiliency, inspiring hope, and encouraging healing and personal growth.

Our resources include:

Mental health
Emergency financial aid
Housing assistance
PTSD and/or TBI referrals
Alternative therapies (HBOT, art therapy, equine therapy, etc.)
Education / GI Bill assistance
…and much more.

Why it matters

Operation Pay It Forward

Operation Pay It Forward

Mission Statement

Our mission is to show our appreciation for our fighting veterans by connecting them with others that share the same passions and are willing to get them into the outdoors and enjoying life again. We challenge all of the veterans that participate to “Pay It Forward” by spreading the word to their brothers and sisters that need help or could use some time in the outdoors to re-focus their minds on the important things in life!

About OPIF

There are plenty of worthwhile charities in this world. There are a lot of those that need help and many social benefits are available to those that are going through a bad time or experiencing medical issues.
Our nation’s veterans raised their hands and purposely put themselves in harm’s way to sacrifice for their fellow Americans. Unfortunately, our society has not put the same measures in place to take care of the unique struggles and injuries our combat veterans return home with. Most struggle to simply understand what our returning veterans are trying to cope with in civilian life.
Operation Pay It Forward was founded and organized by veterans that understand the healing process and help by providing a new focus and mission for these veterans. One of the biggest voids is from the lack of comradery and brotherhood that kept them alive in combat situations. In the civilian life, this is most easily duplicated by spending time in the field hunting, fishing or simply enjoying the outdoors.
Our goal is to provide a new focus for our returning veterans and provide them with a new mission to help save their brothers and sisters they served with. The enemy in civilian life is often within the veteran and much more difficult to identify and fight. We are here to help in that battle.

VetJobs

VetJobs is the leading Internet niche job board for reaching the 10.2 million military veterans currently in the work force, the 200 thousand active duty military personnel who transition each year and the members of the National Guard and Reserve who return to the United States each year from extended deployments, and their family members.

VetJobs was established in 1999 following extensive research on job and resume sites catering to the military market. The research indicated there was a gap in sites which truly assisted employers in identifying the transitioning military and veteran candidates. Those that did exist emphasized transitioning military and missed veterans already in the workforce, members of the National Guard & Reserve and the family members of veterans.

VetJobs is operated by a seasoned management team of professionals to assist companies and hiring authorities to successfully reach the military market.

VetJobs is owned and operated by veterans for veterans. In January 2000, The Veterans of Foreign Wars of the United States exclusively sponsored and purchased ten percent of the company. Since then, VetJobs has garnered more veteran service organization endorsements than any other site. Written endorsements include the Vietnam Veterans of America, Veterans of Modern Warfare, Student Veterans of America, Hope4Heroes, the Military Order of the Purple Heart, United States Army Warrant Officers Association, The Retired Enlisted Association, National Guard Association of the United States and the Reserve Officers Association.

For seventeen years VetJobs has made it easy for employers to reach and employ all the members of the military community. VetJobs defines the military community to include Air Force, Army, Coast Guard, Department of Defense Civilians, Marine Corps, Merchant Marine, National Guard, Navy, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, Public Health Service, Reserves and their spouses and family members. VetJobs makes is easy to reach not only the transitioning military member, but also the highly qualified men and women who are veterans that have separated over the decades and are now productive members of the civilian work force in all disciplines.
