Dedication To The Soldier – Featuring Lieutenant General Gary Brito / Deputy Chief of Staff US Army

- This conversation was recorded virtually in April, 2021 -

The many challenges of the pandemic including stress, anxiety, and isolation, caused an increase in mental health challenges for our Veterans and a spike in suicides amongst our military members. The recent triggering effects of the evacuation from Afghanistan and growing humanitarian crisis has made a bad situation worse and created a perfect storm of events that will require our clinical staff to grow to meet the needs of our warriors and families. 

Together, we have raised more than $1.8 MILLION – And we have a goal for this year to get to $2 MILLION! If you want to contribute any amount, DONATE here.  THANK YOU!

If you are your loved one is experiencing any emotional, mental health struggles, you are not alone and please contact Home Base 617-724-5202, or
