Through our involvement in past fundraisers, we came to realize that there is an urgent need to help our veterans. Now more than ever, veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country are facing homelessness, suicide, and lack of access to the quality and timely medical care they both need and deserve. To spread awareness of this issue, we created this infographic to show people exactly how much those who have fought bravely to protect us are suffering. “Returning soldiers are a vulnerable group, and for too long our nation has turned a blind eye to their needs,” says Attorney Gerald H. Acker. “These facts and statistics are a sobering and critical call to action.”We encourage you to share this infographic with others. You can do so by copying and pasting the embed code on your site, or by sharing on Facebook and other social media. The more we spread around awareness, the sooner we can put an end to this unfair treatment of our veterans.
We are indebted to the brave men and women who have sacrificed so much to protect our country, and are honored to do anything we can to help fight for the rights of veterans. If you are a veteran in need of legal aid, please do not hesitate to contact Goodman Acker P.C. to speak with an attorney.
