By Old Vets Stomping

I'm challenging myself to help prevent veteran suicide.

So, I'd love if you could make a donation to Soldier On today so our veterans and their families can receive vital support services to enable them to thrive.

Thank you!

Ross, Ian, and Tony

Great to see Ross, hope you're enjoying the stomp.



You guys keep on smiling while doing it tough in some pretty crappy weather. Love the cause… as a country we owe our vets so much but give them so little. That seems so heartless, and tactically fraught.
