Start your week with words of wisdom from these philanthropic individuals.
As we’re all here on earth together and we all have to do our part. Jana Sedlakova will explore how these shining stars make a difference.
The GI Film Festival, which addresses veteran employment and image issues. www.gifilmfestival.com
Why is this cause so dear to you:
As a former Army major, I was disturbed how soldiers were portrayed in the media. When society sees soldiers portrayed incorrectly in films – it affects the soldier’s ability to gain employment, treatment options for PTSD, and how they view themselves. Approximately 22 veterans commit suicide each day. Veterans deserve better!
