AMF-GY6 is a team of trained, suicide certified, combat veterans who specialize in reaching struggling fellow veterans and their families by putting "Boots On The Ground" within hours of receiving the call for help.
Purpose: To inspire, empower and improve the quality of life for our combat veterans and their families following service to country
Mission: To provide our combat veterans with a Quick Reaction Force (QRF) of mutually compassionate veterans and their families designed to provide support for one another as they face such reintegration challenges as: (1) Emerging back into a civilian society where less than ½ of 1% of our country serves. (2) Symptoms and Side Effects from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and/or Suicidal thoughts and tendencies. (3) Meeting and safely returning a struggling veteran to a safe environment, if and when the need may arise. (4) Offering support to a veteran in need of housing, shelter, food and/or life essentials and (5) Provide support, assistance and resources to veterans struggling in a time of crisis.
