In 2013,  Department of Veterans Affairs  released a study that covered suicides from 1999 to 2010, which showed that roughly 22 were committing suicide per day, or one every 65 minutes.[4] Some sources suggest that this rate may be undercounting suicides.[5] A recent analysis found an suicide rate among veterans of about 30 per 100,000 population per year, compared with the civilian rate of 14 per 100,000.[5][6] However, the comparison was not adjusted for age and sex.

The total number of suicides differs by age group; 31% of these suicides were by veterans 49 and younger while 69% were by veterans aged 50 and older.[7] As with suicides in general, suicide of veterans is primarily male, with about 97 percent of the suicides being male in the states that reported gender.[6]  READ MORE .  .

We provide Military Transition Assistance and Mentoring for Veterans and their families during these challenging periods.  We understand the value of Veteran Services and the need for our returning veterans into society.

We provide food, clothing, shelter, and transportation assistance for the homeless, disabled and underprivileged Veterans in our community.

We organize and attend local events to raise awareness and encourage activism in helping our Veterans get the assistance and services they need to successfully re-integrate back into civilian life.  Read more . . .

After doing some military time in hostile environments wondering if the next step was going to be my last  I  rejoined  society.  What I didn’t realize was I had a long road ahead of me in civilian life and would have to make many adjustments while facing many Challenges.

There is a huge gap between what Veterans Benefits will pay and what Medical Care Veterans need.   North Georgia Veteran’s Outreach Center is helping to bridge that gap.  Imagine going off to fight for your country in the name of freedom putting your life on the line everyday, not understanding the politics, and coming back to a very ungrateful, hateful, condemning country.  Then to top it off you can’t get the medical care you need, or even worse, no medical care at all.

It doesn’t matter at this point why we were in Vietnam or any other wars or conflicts.  It doesn’t change the fact that there are many Veterans that are not being treated for PTSD and many other military related sicknesses and something needs to be done to help these Veterans.  If you would like to help please contact Jerry Edwards below, or Connect with Jerry on LinkedIn and ask him personally what you can do to help.

There are empty barracks across the country that could house these homeless Veterans but they stay empty.  The best way we can help is to support organizations like the “North Georgia Veterans Outreach Center” that are able to make a difference in these men and women’s lives.  Please contact the Governor of your state to see what you can do to get them to open up the empty Barracks for the homeless Veterans that desperately need a place to stay and encouraging word.  If you are a doctor and would like to donate some of your time to help our Veterans please contact Jerry.  Clinics could be held right inside the Empty Military Barracks.

He currently holds 4 U.S. patents and has been making a living off one of the patents "The Bartol Mag-Probe" for over twenty years. Bartol Research's Mag-Probe now has a global reach and is dramatically reducing trouble shooting downtime anywhere a solenoid valve. relay, or contactor is used. F111 Air Force Projects - European Flight Competition January 1968 Bob attended electronics school in the Air Force. Upon graduation he was assigned to a fighter wing in Germany.

Upon his return to the United States, Air Force headquarters assigned Bob to Air Force research command in Florida. This was strictly a scientific assignment for research and development. After three years he moved from Eglin AFB in Florida to Edwards Air Force Base in California where he had direct contact with the National Bureau of Standards and supported research and development aircraft. During this assignment, he designed a modification for the TF X fighter (F-111). This modification made possible an additional 9800 flying hours per year.
