Mission Statement

Provide happier, healthier lives for veterans living with trauma.



Depression is common among our returning veterans with over 130,000 veteran suicides since 9/11. In 2012, it was estimated that 22 veterans a day commit suicide. 23rd Veteran was created with that shocking statistic in mind.

23rd Veteran is a groundbreaking program working to help veterans adjust back to the civilian world. A nonprofit organization headquartered in Minnesota, 23rd Veteran has created a model that uses brain science, evolutional theory, positive trigger re-association, and positive psychology to assist veterans leaving the military and those who never properly transitioned. We also provide training to businesses and communities who want to create a more positive environment for our returning veterans.
