``We didn’t know how we were going to pay our bills.” Once Daniel was able to connect to PMCN partner agency resources, including Rocky Mountain Human Services, Operation TBI Freedom and other services, he was able to get the help he needed. “These connections were a huge help because small steps lead to huge success.``
- Daniel, Army Veteran
We greatly appreciate the kind words we have received in response to the development of the Peak Military Care Network. But this effort would not be possible without the shared commitment, throughout the Pikes Peak region, to working together for the public good. To the military leaders, service providers, lawmakers, policy experts, educators, business community, and most of all- to the men and women who have served our nation- we extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude.
“Your spouse, son, daughter, family member served our country and there is help out there. The first step is picking up the phone and asking, ‘where do I go for help?’ …You may feel like you are in a dark tunnel and may be intimidated to make that first call, but if you ask for help, there are so many people to help; they guide you, they give you strength.”
The Police Department interacts with the military/veteran community every day in a variety of circumstances. The work PMCN does for our military makes our jobs a little easier.
The Peak Military Care Network (PMCN) is key in assisting our service members and their families in countless ways. As a nation, we put our service members in harm’s way; they have done their jobs; now it is time for us to do ours. The PMCN provides this support that is so richly deserved by these great American heroes.
``We need pretty much every kind of support there is: educational, vocational and financial. Soldiers should know about all of these things that are out there to help. It is stressful trying to get a job in this economy and get set up in school. If I hadn’t had all of this lined up and organized the way I did, I would have been totally lost.``
