"As a U.S. Army Veteran I have seen first-hand the many challenges that our soldiers and Marines face when they return home. The Active Heroes Foundation has a mission of ending veteran suicide and their work is making a real difference and saving families," added Max Michel, Team SIG Captain. "These are America's heroes, we honor them, we support them, and we are committed to ensuring the Active Heroes Foundation has the resources to provide our veterans with the services they need following deployment."
The Active Heroes Foundation provides physical, educational, and emotional programming to assist veterans and their families that are reintegrating following deployment and/or suffer from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).
