This is VIPER! VIPER is transition REDEFINED. Why is ending veteran suicide is a mission close to my heart? I served as a U.S. Army Airborne Infantry Sniper in Apache Company 1-501(ABN) INF 4-25 BCT and tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. I blessed that there were no casualties of the soldiers in my charge. During the two and a half years deployed to combat with these soldiers, I was not prepared for the battle that was looming when we made it home. As a Sniper Team leader and Infantry Squad leader, I led and provided guidance and brought them home safely. After valiantly serving their country they exited the Army, like so many do, without any marketable skills. They were looking for a sense of purpose, meaningful employment, a chance to succeed. But, when my brothers in arms saw ending their lives as their only option, I felt defeated. A darkness settled over me and I knew something needed to change. My new purpose stared me in the face-to dedicate my energy to make sure this evil is stopped. VIPER is a vital change. VIPER programs are free and available to all Veterans. Just as importantly we offer this
training to Military Spouses.
We work hand in hand with our business partners to create quality opportunities for Veterans and Military Spouses. Together we will be the change America’s Veterans deserve. VIPER is transition REDEFINED!
