San Diego, Ca (PRWEB) December 29, 2011
Military Musters, a startup organization committed to assisting wounded warriors and war veterans, is pleased to announce the official launch of its program with a support the troops charitable cause fundraiser that will run until the end of February, 2012. Partners, Teams and Individual Supporters who help raise funds can also compete for top prizes such as airline tickets, a catered luncheon, and more rewards for promoting the cause!
The overall goal of the Military Musters program is to serve as a support liaison for the thousands of soldiers who suffer as a result of combat. The organization has plans to develop the web’s most comprehensive online community and information hub in order to attract and actively engage U.S. military and veteran communities. A few highlights of the program include: veteran employment resources and job bank, information on discharge and separation, psychological and healthcare advice from trusted professionals, a peer-to-peer networking forum and ongoing localized events to keep the communities connected.
Answering the call to duty could not come at a better time, as wounded soldiers return from war in Iraq and Afghanistan in record numbers. The amount of assistance needed by these war heroes greatly exceeds the resources available, and Military Musters is seeking out key supporters and organizations who wish to join the cause.
“There are so many soldiers and family members affected by war that go unseen by the masses. Our goal is to really bridge the gap for the military and veteran communities so they stop falling through an overloaded system that just can’t keep up,” said founder and executive director Don Fried. “We will help restore quality and life to the people who have served us and now they have nowhere to turn.”
Efforts aim to increase support services to military and veteran communities with a core focus on those transitioning back into life after combat. Supporters of the cause will allow the continued development of the Military Musters organization, provide veterans with employment and foster further development of the community program and local events. It will also allow the heroes who fight for our freedom to receive the support they need, when they need it. Military Musters believes in the importance of taking a stand as Americans to help our own citizens restore life and freedom they nearly lost.
“These are the men and women who fight for our country and our freedom. Now it’s our turn to make sure they don’t fall through the cracks,” Don Fried commented.
Military Musters was established in 2011 and plans to grow and become the place to turn to for veterans and military communities. The business goal is to grow beyond a small start-up organization into an industry support leader as the place to turn to for information, education, partners and general support.
