Truly a special day had by all. Our ASN Volunteers Trai Yadon, Annie Nelson, Carol Nelson and Junior Rodriguez helped deliver the bags as well.

Ruckup.org Launch by American Soldiers Network

Ruckup.org 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 ID.me, 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.
