LITERALLY MILLIONS OF VETERANS ARE SUFFERING NEEDLESSLY DUE TO A LACK OF KNOWLEDGE!

4.7 MILLION SENIORS live below the poverty line, having to CHOOSE BETWEEN MEDICINE, FOOD, AND HEAT, WHO MAY NOT HAVE TO. We estimate that 2 Million of them just don’t know that they may qualify for an average of $900 per month in benefits from the VA, and how to get it.

MORE VETERANS DIE OF SUICIDE THAN COMBAT, UP TO 28 A DAY. Millions who volunteered to serve our country, suffer needlessly because they aren’t aware of the help that is available for 80+ issues they and their families grapple with, and how to get that help.

We are Know A Vet? (KAV), an IRS approved (82-1566302), FREE service to veterans, their families and caregivers, designed to Attract, Inform and Connect whose who volunteered to risk their lives to protect ours and our way of life. We provide information and personal assistance, to aid in learning of 80+ issues they have earned help for, and how to get that help, through government and/or community resources, for their best possible life after service.

Please, help us get millions of seniors out of poverty and save countless marriages, destroyed by Vets returning after 3, 4 or 5 deployments with PTSD and a myriad of other physical and emotional issues that make many anti-social, unable to hang on to a job, riddled with constant nightmares, flashbacks and more.

Because "No one comes home from war 'alive’.

KAV, a FREE, Confidential service to veterans, their families and caregivers, is in need of grants and donations to fund our work. We have an extremely low overhead, as we are virtual and all volunteer. In fact we are so efficient that our budget has been less than $35k for the last three years. But programs like our outreach to seniors require significantly more funding. Approximately $375k over the next three years. That produces a 5+ to 1 rate of return to our veterans.


To see the quality of our work, take a look at this week's newsletter https://conta.cc/3nspF4p or our website, www.KnowAVet.org
