ONE TEAM

Veterans of all nation's biggest night out, the VETTYS  is also the biggest public service celebration in the community. The central attraction of the awards is undeniably the display of nonprofit organizations with boots on the ground working in various aspects of the military community. 

The 7th Annual Veterans Awards will serve as an advocacy and awareness platform for an issue that impacts the lives of many individuals around the globe. 

 

As we take note of the past shortcomings as a community and look to the future, we must make it our essential duty to plant seeds of change. It is our fundamental responsibility to embrace the power that comes from knowing the truth. That it is the failed system of public health across the globe that often leads to suicide. Together, we will change the conversation. Together, we will save the world one life at a time.
