Veteran Foundation Echo
Why Partner with Veteran Foundation Echo?
No Soldier, Marine, Seaman, or Airman ever fights alone. They have brothers and sisters in the field, and family waiting back home. When their active time is over, they are, more often than not, completely forgotten by their country and they return home to a world that doesn’t make sense.
Their loved ones cannot understand why something like a car payment is trivial to the veteran. Last week they were supporting a mission with life and death consequences. This week they are home and it feels like the world doesn’t even care about their sacrifices.
This week you are going back to your daily life. This week, no matter how they try, they can’t bring themselves to care about your trivial concerns. Last week they were responsible for millions of dollars’ worth of equipment and they lead a group of well-trained people.
This week they are trying to find a job doing something they can’t convince themselves has any importance or worth. Last week they were proud members of the US Military with an important job and responsibilities. This week…
This week they’ll call Veteran Foundation Echo. We’ve been there. We understand, and we care. Whether they need counseling, financial help, medical help, retraining, or just a friend, we’ll be there to help them re-acclimate to the civilian world.
We will never forget what it was like to come home to an unfamiliar world, or what it was like to find our way in a world that doesn’t understand how to translate our skills to a civilian equivalent. Our mission is our veterans.
Today, Veteran Foundation Echo is committing to a more assistance driven mission. In 2004 we were Echo Entertainment Enterprises, and our mission was entertaining deployed troops and wounded soldiers. With more and more separated or retired former warfighters, it became apparent that our mission needed to adapt to the needs of the veterans who were coming home.
