Sign this Petition— Help Today’s Veterans Find Their Lives Back Home!

If you agree that we, as a nation, need to support our vets by giving them the tools and healing before sending them back into civilian life, please sign this petition and pass it on. The goal is 1,000,000 signatures.

Blessings,

Gene McMahon”

1.

2. Help families prepare for homecoming before Veterans come home.  The military must create nationally standardized and readily available homecoming preparedness resources for families
