18 VETERANS KILL THEMSELVES – EVERYDAY!
The Soldier’s at Peace Project was founded on the principle that our men and women in the armed forces, whom are our nation’s greatest citizens, should not be forgotten before, during or after their service. Their war is not over just because they are home.
Our Project seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely emotionally injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other hot spots around the world by providing them the mental resources they need and providing them a support system of caring people.
People like you. If they so choose, we will even put you in contact with them directly in hopes a true friendship / bond will emerge.
We all hear about the injuries that are traumatic such as amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave warriors from military service. But what about they’re emotional needs?
Look at the statistics:
- 1/3 of U.S. Soldiers are now taking prescription drugs. (Anti-depressants, Pain Pills & Anxiety medications)
- Amphetamine use doubled since 2006
- Sexual offenses have tripled since 2003
- Domestic abuse is up 177% in the past 6 years
- Last year more soldiers died from non-combat injuries than war – Vast majority from: Suicide, Murder or “High Risk Behavior”.
- 18 VETERANS KILL THEMSELVES – EVERYDAY!
- 80% of Soldier suicides take place in the U.S. after a soldier has returned home from war.

What about the traumatic emotional needs of these brave people? Some of these wounded soldiers will return to civilian life minus one or more limbs, or with serious wounds or disfiguring scars, and will face greater challenges in their lives. But many thousands more will return with no physical scars…
yet just as injured .
The “Soldier’s at Peace Project” was founded in 2005 by Steven Diamond after personally meeting with some of the first vets to return home. This empowering program gives a voice to this new generation of veterans facing unique emotional issues and problems. The Project fills the vital need for a coordinated, united effort to enable everyday citizens (You and I) to aid and assist emotionally wounded veterans as they readjust to civilian life. People need people. It’s just that simple. This project is only the first step in a grand vision of support for those who fought for OUR freedom.
To date, Steven Diamond has given free access to his digital audio course program to hundreds of soldiers who have requested help.
In phase two of our program, we are actively seeking corporate sponsors and we are committed to donate to any U.S. Military Service man or woman, active or retired (completely free of charge) free access to a private online support community developed specifically for the unique challenges they face, mentally and emotionally. This community will provide a safe harbor for every service member who requests access! (Coming Fall Of 2010) This new online training community that we are currently building behind the scenes is extremely expensive and complex to create and install.
We need your support. Please donate.
It’s a great way to “pay it forward” and help those who fought for you and this country.
In addition, you can donate any amount to this program so that we may provide more access to the greatest number of U.S. Soldiers possible. 100% of the access you donate goes directly to U.S. Military Service Personal program.
