Your Donation Provides These Services

Time Of Need Counseling

Funeral homes prey on our Veteran families, driving up the price of a funeral our families can’t afford. We step in and negotiate for them with biohazard clean up companies and funeral homes.

Crisis Funeral Funding

Veteran families that reach out to us need the fiscal support we offer to bury their sons and daughters, husbands and wives with the dignity and honor they deserve.

Free TM Classes

Our families are offered free Transcendental Meditation lessons from the David Lynch Foundation to teach them how to reset their troubled minds whenever and wherever they need relief.

PTSD and Depression

No mental health resources means the PTSD they were infected with will claim another victim. We offer hope out of that vicious cycle.

Q

Suicide Ideation Again

Veteran families have told us of additional suicides as a result of the Veteran’s. Even children can’t escape the dangerous and deadly thoughts.

Financial Hardship

Most Veterans had no life insurance and their funerals put their survivors into a deeper financial hole. Stress and sadness ensue.

You have made my struggles with losing Cedrick bearable. I have gone to therapy, church groups, bereavement classes and take meds, but nothing has helped as much as OAS.

I would like to thank you for all that you do.  I am truly thankful for your dedication to knowing the problem and trying to make others aware of the tragedy soldiers & their families endure. It has really, really been a hard road.  I wish every day that Cedrick was here and I was the one God called. So sad.
