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 they are not alone and that they will choose 10 key principals for a life worth living and will be accountable to their battle buddies. This oath has been placed on pocket cards to always be with them, with the veteran crisis line on the back so at any given moment there is always a resource available.

We will launch the Oath challenge at Freedom Fest Colorado on Saturday June 17, 2017 where we will ask all vets in attendance to take the oath, then to post a video message taking the oath and upload it to their social media challenging their fellow vets to do the same and so on. Spreading like wildfire. Veterans/Military can contact ASN to receive their own oath cards via mail and even obtain extras so when they are around others in need they can have them take the oath right then and there give them the card and carry it forward. Taking that first step.

Every great journey begins with that first step and we are praying this gets those struggling and those who have been fighting some dark demons to take that first step. We DO This Together! We are in the process of recreating a portal for our website that will (we hope – in the near future) incorporate many of the treatment programs across the country that are out there, many of which do not have the marketing budgets, big PR dollars and savvy to get to the masses. We all need to collaborate and work together to reach our military/veteran community.

It all starts with that FIRST step! I choose to LIVE! #####

Selfless Veteran, a Medal of Honor Recipient, Given a Brand-New Truck for His Heroism

By DAVID WHITING / STAFF COLUMNIST OC REGISTER It is a cool April day in the mountains above Julian, and Medal of Honor recipient John Baca climbs in his tiny, beat-up red truck, reaches over and opens the passenger door for me because, well, the handle is long gone. We pull away from his small rustic cabin and rattle and bounce down a dirt road as Baca distributes mail to shut-ins, gives out apple pies and makes sure that folks without know that someone cares. It’s a typical day for an extraordinary Vietnam veteran, a man who threw himself on a grenade in 1970 so that his Army buddies could live. Miraculously, Baca survived, and while still suffering from injuries, he pays it forward by giving away just about everything. Heck, Baca even gave away his house in Huntington Beach. It was near the park named after him. But in a unique moment last weekend before hundreds of fellow veterans, the Medal of Honor recipient finally allowed that sometimes accepting a gift means more than giving a gift. Baca’s eyes grew wide when he saw his present. Civilians, as well as men who once faced battle as their brothers bled, brushed away tears. And this man awarded the nation’s highest medal for valor in combat found some healing. AN ANGEL FOR TROOPS Buying a car is easy. Getting a vehicle for a man who gives away everything is tough. Enter Annie Nelson. She graduated from Mission Viejo High School and Cal State Long Beach, then modeled and became a flight attendant. Life was good – until she suffered a...
