December, 2016

Dear Friend:

I’d like to introduce you to my friend, Andrew. Andrew joined the Army Reserves right after high school, as a Military Police officer. He began college after Basic Training, but his unit was called up and shipped out to Iraq during his sophomore year. Andrew’s best friend was killed by an IED shortly after they arrived in Baghdad, and Andrew was shot soon after.
After many months of recovery stateside, Andrew is one of the thousands
of veterans who return home suffering from serious illnesses like post-traumatic stress, severe depression, and chronic pain.

As we have all seen in the news, the VA is overwhelmed and unable to give optimal care to all of our veterans. In many tragic cases, veterans have died waiting for the care they were promised. Many, like Kyle, have found no relief from the therapies and medications prescribed by VA doctors that cannot touch their pain or heal the lasting effects of trauma. And the sad truth is, perhaps because the wait is so long and medications don’t solve their problems or ease their pain, 20 American veterans commit suicide every day.

As I’m sure you agree, that number is simply unacceptable. But here’s the good news: you can help veterans in Connecticut, RI, MA and NY get the care they deserve—care that will actually treat their symptoms and heal their underlying psychological wounds. Because an extraordinary organization, Warriors for Warriors (WfW), does just that. WfW is a non-profit organization that offers free treatments and counseling to veterans—treating them with holistic acupuncture that offers steady and measurable results, and effectively addresses their issues by caring for the whole person—mind, body, and spirit.

Please make a contribution today of $20, $50, or even $100 so that we can treat even more veterans who are suffering every day. And here’s some great news! Some of WfW’s kind and generous donors have offered to match your contribution today—dollar for dollar—up to $4,000. So please be as generous as you can.

WfW collaborates with other non-profits that are helping to bridge the VA funding gap—by partially or fully funding an initial series of treatments. But even with this bridge, veterans might have to wait a month or more for approval, and then for treatments to begin.

With your support today, WfW can treat veterans right away, when they need to be seen, and start the healing process—before they turn to alcohol, drugs, and despair.

This immediate attention is at least as important to veterans as the treatment itself. It shows them that America takes care of her veterans, like our veterans took care of us when they signed up to serve. We have not forgotten them. Kyle’s experiences overseas affected him greatly, leaving with him with debilitating, constant severe back, neck and shoulder pain that made walking extremely painful, migraines with chronic light sensitivity, and acute PTS. His situation is complicated and difficult to treat, so I spend two hours each week counseling and treating him with acupuncture, as well as a full range of comprehensive, holistic programs that WfW offers our veterans. The VA covers just 45 minutes of this work, 20 minutes are covered by WfW, and I donate the rest of my time to help Kyle as much as I can.

I’m happy to tell you that, after just a few months, Kyle is doing much better. He says, “I heard about Warriors for Warriors, and I was really at a point where it couldn’t hurt to try something different—because nothing was making me feel better. It turned out to be one of the greatest decisions I’ve ever made. Now I can go out and live my life, and I’m very grateful.” Kyle received his initial consultation and treatment at no charge, because of the kindness of Warriors for Warriors supporters. But our funds will soon be depleted—and there are so many more veterans that need our help—and that is why I am turning to you for your support today.

Please make a generous gift to Warriors for Warriors, of $20, $50, or even $100—which will be matched dollar for dollar today—so we can help more veterans get their lives back on track.

I’ve been practicing Asian medicine for more than 25 years, and have seen remarkable results through these ancient and gentle healing practices. I’ve always treated veterans and service members, but I developed specific protocols to combat PTS and other stress related illnesses that veterans experience, when I volunteered to treat residents after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary. When I saw how much we could help these anguished people with immediate treatment, I knew I could do more for our veterans.

Warriors for Warriors’ work is so important, because it can help our vets truly enjoy life again. My greatest wish is that no veteran takes his or her life, or suffers pain or hopelessness. Today, you can help to make that wish a reality by making a contribution to Warriors for Warriors. Together, we can show our veterans how much we appreciate their service on our behalf, and help them get their lives back on track.

Best wishes for a safe and healthy holiday season, and a happy New Year.

Please make a generous contribution to Warriors for Warriors today, to help us help our veterans. Any amount you give will be matched dollar for dollar, and will make a tremendous difference. Thank you.
