(WHO'S YOUR VET?)
Hoosier Vet was established by an OIF veteran and family, with the sole purpose to raise funds supporting Hoosier Veterans' physical well-being and mental health. We all know someone who has served our country- a friend, neighbor, family member, or colleague. It is very likely that personal struggles related to their military experience has been encountered at some point in their life. With increased advocacy and support, our hope is to show our compassion and appreciation by giving back to those who made the ultimate sacrifice of signing up to defend our country.
