About America America 4R Veterans:
A4RM was founded in 2006 we supported/adopted entire battalions serving on the front lines in Iraq and Afghanistan. Over 60 TONS of needed supplies and items to boost morale were shipped! We touched the lives of over 16,ooo Marines, Sailors and their families!!
Since 2012, we have been assisting veterans suffering with the UNSEEN wounds of combat: TBI (Traumatic Brain Injury) and PTS (Post Traumatic Stress). With so many servicemen and women returning home from war after multiple deployments, too many are suffering with debilitating symptoms of PTS/TBI. We have seen there is a severe lack of support, education and resources available to our nation’s heroes in a timely matter, thus allowing many warriors, and their families who are supporting them, to fall through the cracks. We must always show our military our deepest respect, appreciation and gratitude for their service and sacrifices on our behalf and honor them by being here to assist and support them when needed!
Our mission must continue once our servicemen and women return home! They need us!
