About The Shepherd’s Men
As the United States entered its thirteenth year of war, the consequences were becoming increasingly apparent to anyone who paid attention. Local news featured reoccurring stories of veteran suicide, the VA system was dogged daily by negative press and our sons and daughters were being asked to deploy at an accelerated rate that was unlike any other time in our Nation’s history. It seemed that prolonged conflict was having a numbing effect. Meanwhile in Atlanta, GA at the SHARE Military Initiative at Shepherd Center, lives were being saved and generations were being positively affected through innovative therapy and treatment. Men and women who had exhausted all hope were being transformed by the work being done at SHARE and the outcomes were nothing short of miraculous. The SHARE Military Initiative at The Shepherd Center was saving our heroes and SHARE’s work inspired a group of dedicated and committed patriots to draw a line in the sand and commit themselves to something much bigger than themselves. These dutiful Americans, who would call themselves the Shepherd’s Men, would commit themselves to advocating the mission of SHARE while raising funds to ensure the program’s ability to set the standard as it relates to treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury for veterans of post-9/11 wars. In Atlanta, GA, HOPE was flourishing.
