Hi there Folks,
Firstly, let me introduce myself so you know this is not spam.
I am a UK based Veteran. I served 22 years in the British Army as an infantryman.
Once back out on to Civvy street, I went down very badly with PTSD to the point of several suicide attempts. Thankfully, I got the help I needed and have since dedicated myself to the welfare of Veterans and their Families. I am very proud to say that I now have my own Veterans Help Centre here in the UK with it’s own mental health treatment service which is helping so many.
But the reason why I come to you today is my Veterans Magazine, the Sandbag Times. I have been running this publication in the UK for around 3 years and it has proved to be the most successful veterans publication in the UK by a long way.
I have always wanted to expand into the US to try to get information out to the Veterans there. I will say upfront, I do not need, am not asking nor will I ask for money. Everything I do, it is done as a volunteer and as a duty to my fellow veterans.
The creation of the publication is down to me and me only. I love doing this and just want to reach out to as many as possible.
OK, now that uncomfortable bit is out of the way, the picture featured here is the idea for my first issue. All I need is content from the US. I get plenty of news stories to fill the news pages but would like articles from veterans themselves, also from charities, organisations, military/ veterans book authors etc.
To get an idea of what I do, take a look at the following page for my latest issue plus all of our back issues. https://www.yumpu.com/kiosk/sandbagtimes
If you are intersted in getting involved with the US version please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for your time in reading this.
