“To care for them who shall have borne the battle, and for their partners, and their orphans.”

 War Statistics, Military.com

US and allied service members are set to be out of Afghanistan by early to mid-July, well ahead of President Biden’s Sept. 11 deadline. (NYT report) Over 8,000 American service members are estimated to have died in Iraq and Afghanistan, with hundreds of thousands wounded in visible and invisible ways.

Twenty years of war in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria and Pakistan have cost American taxpayers over $6 trillion according to the Watson Institute of International and Public Affairs at Brown University. More than 800,000 people have died as a direct result of fighting. (Brown COW). 

The Mighty Oaks Foundation, America’s Might Warriors, the 22 Project, and TreatNOW remind us of other statistics that get lost too often.

Increased Likelihood of
Suicide Among Veterans

Congress, the VA and DoD can and must do better. We can arrest the suicide rate among all Americans. The Opioid and Substance Abuse epidemics can likewise be reversed if and when we accept what science and research and clinical/evidence-based medicine are telling us, all over the world. The use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation (HBOT), together with Functional Medicine and other safe and effective therapies are in use and available today. (Evidence)
