"The vets who need the help the most are the least likely to ask for it. They often already feel ashamed and even worthless and burdensome to their friends and family. They probably won't ask you for help or tell you they're hurting. But they'll show you all the warning signs. Our job is to speak up and help them get the help they need." ~Dan Johnson, Founder
