Launch by American Soldiers Network Launch by American Soldiers Network

The American Soldier Network developed  RuckUp, a website that will serve as an indispensable resource for veterans and their families in the fight against Veteran/Soldier Suicide. The site will remind our veterans that they never need to suffer alone, a hub for our soldiers to build connections. Build communities. Build hope. RuckUp highlights: The Foxhole Vets/Military can connect with in a secure ID verified space, partnered with, vets can connect safely and securly with each other through a forum system, where they can find buddies, meet new friends, and pass on info (so no soldier is left behind!). Unlike Social Media where nothing is private, secure nor veteran verified. Aid-Station RESOURCES  Vets and their family members can search trusted support and treatment providers to find help that’s available nearby. Vetted and approved resources will include facilities that treat PTS, TBI, CTS, depression, addiction, and provide alternative treatments in suicide prevention. (Hope outside the VA) Take the Oath Here, vets can ‘Take the Oath’ (I Choose to Live) and share on social media. (We have had 17 saves that we know of to date since launching the Oath last summer) Caregivers Corner Family members and people providing care for vets can read articles, find resources, and refer family members/friends to get help through the site. Let’s RuckUp, and work together to bring honor, gratitude, and compassion to the men and women of our military. here are some # hashtags for you Hashtags: #RuckUp #TakeTheOath #IChooseToLive #ASNOath #VetsAgainstSuicide #VetsAgainstAddiction #VetsAgainstHomlessness #VetsHelpingVets #HelpVeterans #NoSoldierLeftBehind #AmericanSoldierNetwork #ASN #WeDoThisTogether #SaveOurHeroes... read more

WE NEED YOU! What: Help Launch our “I Choose To Live” Oath Challenge When: Saturday June 17,2017 How: Upload a video on your social media of you taking the “I Choose to Live” Oath Challenge your fellow veterans & military to do the same, tag lnstagram @AmericanSoldierNetwork Facebook /AmericanSoldierNetwork Twitter@forRtroops #lchooseTOLive #WeDOThisTogether #OathChallenge Why: To ACTIVELY help take the first step in SAVING LIVES ASN will launch their National “I Choose to Live” Oath Challenge to help prevent veteran/military suicides and start to LIVE and choose to LIVE not focus on our battles but on our blessings and reasons to stay alive. We believe this is so much more than a# or a statistic. It is about individual lives and brains. PTS, TBI, Demons and life experiences are all dramatically individual and impact EVERYONE differently. There is NO one size fits all cure, treatment or way of help. There are many but there MUST be a FIRST step. Like in the 12 step programs that have been immensely successful throughout the world for decades we fully believe brain health and the fight for a healthy life worth living starts with that first step, the “I Choose to Live” Oath. Our military members start their careers with the Oath to serve the nation, they must take that same oath when they reenlist and they NEVER forget that oath long after their days in the service are over, so in that same vein we have created a lifelong Oath for our veterans/military community. This will be the first step in healing and healthy living. A lifelong Oath to live, to admit... read more
