So What's GallantFew anyways?

June 14, 2014 0 Comments

GallantFew, Inc’s (501(c)3 Non-Profit) mission is to reduce US Army Ranger veteran unemployment, homelessness and eliminate Ranger veteran suicide by a unique program of one-on-one mentoring by a Ranger veteran, now successful in civilian business, with a Ranger veteran just departed active duty.  This effort is called the Darby Project (in honor of WWII’s Darby’s Rangers).  Our dream is to one day be able to assist every honorably discharged veteran from every branch of the service.

Our founder, a veteran, has experienced unemployment. He has fought translating his military skills (Airborne Ranger, infantry company commander and Ranger battalion staff officer) into language appealing to civilian employers. He has experienced the incredible delays in the VA medical system – and he believes we can do better.

GallantFew, Inc., meets these veterans during the process of departing from the military. GallantFew, Inc. coaches them through the transition process, assess their skills, desires and abilities, offer training as necessary, network them professionally and socially back into the community, and will be a source of physical, social, professional and emotional support. Initially we will accomplish this all through volunteers. Ultimately, this program will be funded, staffed, and scaled up to include every veteran of every branch of the military.

The team that supported, loved, disciplined and cared for each other is suddenly separated.

Discharge, severance, separation – all terms used to describe departing the military. These unpleasant terms set a negative tone for the experience many of our new veterans enter as they return to being civilians. This doesn′t have to happen. Our unique approach pairs a new veteran with an experienced veteran mentor at point of discharge and at the new veteran′s home city. Our mentors provide tips to translate one′s military experience into high-impact civilian resumes, interview techniques, veteran business ownership opportunities and veterans benefits. How do you go from “support and defend the Constitution of the United States” to “do you want fries with that”? You continue to find and develop your sense of purpose and value – that is GallantFew′s bottom line. GallantFew, Inc is a 501(c)3 non-profit. We focus on Social Networking, Professional Development, Emotional Support and Physical Assistance to veterans; and Education & Referrals for corporations. There is no fee to any veteran for our services.

Social Networking: We combine personal relationships with web 2.0 to quickly make connections that lead to bolder programs. Already 1,000+ volunteers.

Professional Networking: The modern job search requires a strong professional referral network. We train veterans how to network and shape their future careers.

Emotional Support: Veterans trust veterans. Our network forms the foundation of an emotional support web.

Physical Assistance: We provide or coordinate assistance to our physically disabled veterans.

The word Post Traumatic Stress DISORDER is ridiculous. I understand the Post Traumatic Stress part but the DISORDER? Why? Does having PTS really mean you have a disorder. Maybe to a clinical psychologists who refer to the DSM IV to diagnose a certain mental health issue it can be a disorder. However, the word disorder used for veterans can cripple your mental stability.

I hope this letter reaches you in relative peace. I am Fritz Sleigher and just retired out of MARSOC after 22 years in our beloved Corps. Thank you for the retirement note. I served as an 02, 0369, 0311, and 0317 with a smattering of other MOS’ at various units. I retired as a Gunny, which will come into play shortly. I watched your video and feel your pain. Although we have never met, I am certain that you feel each loss of life and are just as confused as to why Marines are taking their lives at an alarming rate. I’ll never understand the monumental burden of command you bear, but I am certain we both share the feeling of loss, guilt, and confusion after each suicide. The BLUF on suicide is this: The current culture of the Corps conflicts with itself and creates an environment where those in need feel even more secluded. I re-posted your article on FB, and several peers (recently retired enlisted combat vets) sing the same tune: The Corps let them down.
