The PolitiChicks Team Up with VetRest to Help Veterans Suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress

The PolitiChicks partnered with VetRest last Wednesday at Emmett O’Lunney’s Irish Pub in New York City to raise money for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS). The event was hosted by and CEO Rob Vicci (Lt.Col. RET).

We lose nearly 22 veterans each day in this country to suicide. So, VetRest works with our vets to provide peer-to-peer counseling and coaching as well as an encouraging environment to those suffering from PTS.

The mission of VetRest is to facilitate Restoration, Encouragement, Solace, and Training for our nation’s veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) by helping them identify the cause of their PTS in an environment where VetRest’s signature program can promote healing.

How VetRest started:

“After a cumulative period of receiving daily emails of Soldier suicides, MG Daniel York (USAR) put a plan in motion to stem the problem by addressing what is recognized as often a contributing issue—Post-Traumatic Stress (PTS) and the suffering it brings into the lives of so many Veterans. “According to recent studies over 300,000 veterans experience PTS and it is estimated that approximately 20% of over two million service members who deployed will develop PTSD.”

Four West Point graduates collectively provided the initial funding. VetREST launched with the intent of helping Vets address their challenges with a goal of finding peace from their hidden battles.”

VetRest’s Strategy:
“We have created two key lines of effort to help participating Vets. Each Line of Effort was carefully constructed by experienced men and women who have a compassion for our countries brave Veterans.  The first and most powerful line is coaching.  The second line is establishing healthy living.  These lines of efforts are put into action through the creation of chapters across the country.  Currently we have chapters launching in Portland, OR, San Antonio, TX, Colorado Springs, CO, Atlanta, GA, northern VA, and New York City-Philly-Jersey.”
