Charity name: United Way of Central Georgia CFC #: 89218 [soldiers on battlefield] Our military veterans have tremendous skills and experience, [injured military personnel talking with leader] but many of them struggle to reenter civilian life. [military personnel with daughter] [veteran speaking about attempting suicide] “I even thought about, well, go out in the woods and do it. Get it over with. No one will find me.” [pictures of deployed soldiers] Men and women put their lives on the line for the freedoms our nation enjoys. We as a nation owe them a debt of gratitude, [Major General McMahon speaks about transition to civilian life for veterans] but more importantly what we owe them is an opportunity to get reintegrated into our society as fully functional members. [Veteran Navigator from Mission United meets with veteran to go over Mission United’s benefits] Mission United brings veterans services under one streamlined process, so that veterans and their families have a single entry point for help. [veteran learning access to portal and benefits through Mission United] [Veteran on the job as a civilian] That can be job training and placement, [veteran seeking legal advice] free legal assistance, [picture: coaching in housing, finances] affordable housing, mental health care, financial coaching and so much more. [American Flags waving] [Veteran speaks on how Mission United helped him regain control of his life] Mission United stopped me on my deadly spiral. I was spiraling out of control.
