Having a roof over your head and a warm place to call your home is something many of us take for granted. It’s something you don’t always think about having, until it’s gone.
Often times veterans return from overseas and find themselves without stable housing. For Daniel, having a safe place to raise his family was difficult after finding himself on medical discharge from the Louisiana National Guard. Daniel had served our country faithfully during a deployment in Iraq, only to return with back and brain injuries as well as post traumatic stress.
Daniel and his wife found themselves living in an old trailer, worrying about their health and their children’s safety. Luckily, Boot Campaign was there to help Daniel and his family get back on their feet.
Boot Campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of the unique challenges service members face during and post-service; and providing assistance to military personnel and their families. There are far too many families like Daniel’s that need help post-service and Boot Campaign is working to combat it.
In honor of Military Appreciation Month, a portion of all May proceeds at www.batesfootwear.com will go to Boot Campaign and their support programs. For more information about Boot Campaign and to read Daniel’s full story click here.
