This bracelet is an outward expression and display of what Run Ranger Run is all about; Driving the awareness of what our service members face as they transition from active military service to civilian life.
GallantFew’s mission is to prevent Veteran isolation by connecting new Veterans with hometown Veteran mentors, thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
We are living in a time where hundreds of thousands of service members are transitioning to civilian life. Many are transitioning with un-realistic expectations of what life may be like in the world of civilians. As a result, Veterans and/or active service members are taking their own lives at an alarming rate of 22 per day.
It is our responsibility to understand this circumstance, to provide realistic expectations, to bridge the gap between service to civilian and to enable the next mission for our service members to accomplish in the civilian world. When we establish the next mission we establish the next purpose for our service members to achieve, honor and defend.
