U.S. Army Veteran to Help Other Military Veterans Worldwide Through New Social Site
By: Jinger Jarrett
Jarrett studied the veterans' community for two years before creating her site. She discovered five issues that all veterans' communities have in common: getting benefits, building businesses and finding jobs, meeting short term needs like paying a bill, healing from Post Traumatic Stress and ending homelessness.
Once she identified these issues, she decided it was time to do something about them. She decided the way to do this was to build a social site where veterans could connect, as well as sell their products and services. Those who wanted to socialize would get a free membership. For those who wanted to do business on the site they would pay a nominal fee. This would allow for upkeep of the site as well as raising money to help fund programs to solve the five problems veterans face.
"Too many of the programs created to help veterans today don't really deal with the problems. They're just feel good programs. Some countries don't have any resources at all for their veterans. So many end up homeless, in jail and struggling with Post Traumatic Stress. My goal is to create programs that will actually address these issues," Jarrett said.
Her ideas include offering free business training to teach veterans how to build businesses and create their own jobs. Veterans could also get help with job hunting and resumes, money to pay short term bills, free resources to help heal Post Traumatic Stress, which would include offering things like Healing Code webinars taught by trained coaches. Much of what Jarrett plans to offer will be resources she creates based on her experience. Other resources would be funded through the profits from the business memberships sold.

Jarrett hopes to reach as many veterans as possible with her site. "I know that I can't help every veteran. Not every veteran needs help and some don't want help anyway. If I can help just one to get a job or avoid suicide, then I consider my work to be a success," she said.
Membership is now open to all veterans. All U.S. Veterans and their allies are welcome regardless of whether their country of origin recognizes them as veterans or not. This includes the British, Australians, South Africans and all other 20th century allies from NATO.
