Our mission is to be the example, not the statistic. As veterans we often hear the touted statistics about veteran homelessness, substance abuse, and suicide, and we wanted help to change that narrative. Our goal is to show that your injuries, whether visible or invisible, don't define you. You get to choose your own path after the military, and we wanted to show what's possible for veterans to be something other than a statistic. This applies to everyone, not just veterans, in that we can all choose our own path and can try to be an example for others despite our challenges or setbacks. We strive to show that a statistic is only a starting point, and you should never believe it's a stopping point.
