The East Texas Devil Dogs began in January of this year. Here is information about the organization:
Assisted one homeless Marine with securing a job, transportation, home, and enough necessities to last through the first paychecks.
The same network was utilized to help a Marine who was struggling with suicidal thoughts in the middle of the night. They were able to secure transportation from deep east Texas to Shreveport where the Marine received necessary treatment.
All funds, whether directly given to ETDD, or donated to Devil Dog Nation (the national charity who sponsors ETDD) are earmarked for and stay within the East Texas area.
No one being helped is given the funds. All funds are distributed to the bill/landlord or stores and are supported with proper documentation.
The number one priority is to assist Marines and FMF Corpsmen with financial and physical burdens. This helps to relieve the most common stresses that compound PTSD symptoms and aids in their secondary objective of trying to decrease the 22 suicides per day of current and former service members.
Marines and FMF Corpsmen are their top priority but all branches of the military will be assisted as funds allow.
