CJH- Active Duty

I am active duty at fort bragg with the 82nd ABN DIV. I have been shooting 3 Gun and USPSA for a little over 2 and a half years and in that time I have been able to help several active duty and vets get into the shooting community. I am a chaplain assistant in the 82nd so I see first hand how big the problem of suicide is in the active and the veteran community, bringing vets into the shooting community gives them a place to go for support if they need and and gives them a outlet to go to.

I have had multiple brothers from the Army commit suicide. I have always felt like I could have done more to prevent it. In my own experience, I know there are times that feel hopeless. Fortunately I have a good support group in my family. I want the opportunity to reach out to more veterans and let them realize that its not hopeless and there are people that care.

I spent a little over 9 years active Army. I have done two combat deployments, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I am currently a Sheriff’s Deputy. I am also one of two people in the department trained to responding to veterans in crisis.

I joined the Army as an Infantryman in 2003 before moving over to the Medical Corps in 2005. the Army has been good to me and I am as-yet unbroken physically or mentally, but I recognize that I am one of the lucky ones. I have lost friends both to combat and suicide, and as an ER doc and former BN surgeon I see the results of the struggle many soldiers and families go through every day. V3G is a way I can use the sport I love to help the vets I care about. I am currently in GA, but I’m moving to Ft Hood this July and plan to attend the monthly events nearby as often as I can. I would love to start a team when I get there to help vets and soldiers in the Central Texas area.

I want to thank Veterans 3 Gun and everyone that helped with getting me the gear needed to compete in my first USPSA match. I am proud to say I am part of a team again and helping others like me in the process.

Not only is Veterans 3 Gun doing great things with veterans in competitive shooting sports, but they are actively helping veterans throughout the community in so many more ways. I can’t wait to slow down for a second so I can participate! Thanks for all you guys do!

I have been seeing on my FB feed about how so many nonprofit organizations only give back 20% of the funds that are raised to help what they are promoting. This is so sad, but I don’t want this to discourage you from giving to great organizations, because they are out there. If it is a true, caring, unselfish organization they are not just about the money they raise, but the commitment, trust, honor, and loyalty…. It’s about being a volunteer, a member, a trusting team player! Helping the organization, to be able to help others.

I have personal seen Veterans 3 Gun go above and beyond the standards of what I have ever seen most nonprofit organization do… This org, has helped individuals, team members and other nonprofit organizations. I can proudly say the organization I support is Veterans 3 Gun! What’s your organization?


Tesimonial: George Walker Team 102

Went out and shot my first USPSA match today, had a great time and made some new friends in the process. As a Team Captain (Team 102) I genuinely feel a renewed sense of purpose thanks to Veterans 3 Gun, simply because I get to impact new lives that I likely never would’ve had the chance of meeting, had it not been for this organization. The ability to network with other vets, and go out and compete, and hopefully keep fellow veterans from making a choice that would hurt them and their loved ones, creates a bit of passion that I haven’t felt in a long time. It’s almost like training a fresh squad to get ready for a deployment, and developing those bonds is unlike anything else, it kind of makes me feel at home in ways that civilian life never could. Thank you Paul van Oudheusden, this organization his genuinely changed my life, and I both hope and know that it will continue to change many others’ lives as well.
