Press Release Misses Majority of USA Veterans

Once again, something sounds like a good thing to do until you actually notice what is missing.

Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund Receives More Than $2.1 Million Donation From NAPA Auto Parts’ Annual “Get Back and Give Back” Campaign

One hundred percent of the donation goes to the IFHF’s mission of building nine Intrepid Spirit centers around the country that diagnose and treat Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and psychological health conditions in U.S. service members. Currently, Intrepid Spirit Centers are operational at Fort Belvoir, VA; Camp Lejeune, NC; Fort Campbell, KY; Fort Bragg, NC; and Fort Hood, TX. Each Intrepid Spirit center costs approximately $11 million to construct and equip with the latest in brain technology and treatment facilities and spans 25,000 square feet.
The Center for the Intrepid
In January 2007 the Fund completed construction of the Center for the Intrepid, a $55 million world-class state-of-the-art physical rehabilitation center at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio, Texas. The Center serves military personnel who have been catastrophically disabled in operations in Iraq and Afghanistan, and veterans severely injured in other operations and in the normal performance of their duties. The 60,000 square foot Center provides ample space and facilities for the rehabilitation needs of the patients and their caregivers. It includes modern physical rehabilitation equipment and extensive indoor and outdoor facilities.
What's missing? The majority of the veterans in this country, Pre-2001, who fought the wars and carried the scars the same as the newer veterans.
