National attention has been drawn to Veterans with PTSD and SUICIDE. 

  June 10, 2015 - (DENVER) Returning Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom Veterans are suffering from the after effects of war, primarilyPTSD. We must understand, these occurrences of suicide are a semblance of the established programs designed to help us. The solution isn't the pharmaceutical medications or referring someone to a government program, the solution is BEING THERE AT THAT MOMENT. 

       This month of June on the 6th we honored those souls who gave their lives on D-Day. In 2000, the US census showed 52% of Veterans were WWII Veterans. Today, it is estimated there are 20 million Veterans in the United States. 

    We lost almost 7000 brave men and women from 2001 - 2015 in both the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts. Today, 8000 of those men and women who served are taking their own lives on US soil.

      Today, we have the "Battle Buddy" system. Unlike Vietnam Veterans, we have the ability to Facebook, Text, Call, SnapChat or IG each other, just to ask, "Are you ok?" 

    GI Greens has established a Battle Buddy system, providing sponsors with cell phones to receive calls 24/7. Sponsors are Veterans and family members personally affected by suicide and PTSD. Their phone numbers will be publicly listed on our website.

But the issues of PTSD & SUICIDE are issues that affect everyone in our society.

**************************************************************************
This is why GI Greens, a Veteran run service, is partnering with Natural Care to expand their Crisis Line services, COMMOS, to the public. *************************************************

We are seeking additional funds to help us continue to provide our concerned  Veterans and families, personally affected by PTSD & SUICIDE, who have volunteered 44,640 minutes of their lives to be available for a stranger in a crisis. The funds will cover:

100 pre paid cell phones/ Pre-paid cardsPrint - To promote more awareness, we will be printing fliers for events, business and partnering organizations.Media  - We are expanding our social media for this project to the radio and television and WEBSITE ( to list the numbers and link resources).We are developing an app that will launch in a few weeks.       

This programs provides a unique opportunity for TWO PEOPLE of different worlds to connect for a similar cause:

THIER OWN LIVES.

We are also looking to expand this program nationally, also needing;
