THE NEED

Everyday 22+ veterans and 1 active duty service member takes their own lives. A recent study found U.S. veteran suicide rates to be as high as 8,000 a year. According to RAND, at least 20% of Iraq and Afghanistan veterans have PTSD and/or Depression. Military counselors suggest the percentage of veterans with PTSD is much higher. A recent sample of 600 veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan found: 14% post-traumatic stress disorder; 39% alcohol abuse; 3% drug abuse. Major depression is also a problem.

THE MISSION

Military Muscle Foundation’s mission is to combat and promote awareness for both veteran and military suicide, alongside PTSD. Our focus is to use fitness events as our platform to provide “rehabilitation of mind, body and soul through fitness”. Also, we provide benevolent assistance to veterans and active duty service members families who need our help. Our community outreach program is here to provide members and their families access to the right resources and create a positive peer group for support.

THE SOLUTION

We are dedicated to improving and saving the lives of our veterans and active duty service members. Through fitness and education, we will strive to prevent suicide, and promote both mental and physical health within our military community. We want to create an environment for individuals and their families to have the building blocks to thrive, have support, and to help lead them transition to a positive lifestyle. With your help, we can make a real difference and save lives. We will get that number down to zero!

NEWS & EVENTS

We organize, sponsor, and take part in a variety of events to help people learn about and get involved with the Military Muscle Foundation. From talks to charity drives to community service, this is where you can find out what’s going on and how YOU can help!

Hello my name is Jackson Stamper and I want to share with you what Military Muscle Foundation has done for me and one of my friends Nate Dees. Nate and I are overseas working as contractors. You know working overseas and being exposed to so much and really break you down. Being away from your wives, kids, and loved ones you can fall into depression and get down. We stumbled across MMF on IG and started following them. We love the videos and information they provided. Their athlete Johnathan Lopez (Oriden757) he is such a bad ass and inspiration. So we emailed MMF to see if we could possibly meet Johnathan. With us being overseas we know was hard and probably not possible to meet him. So MMF made it possible and we got a chance speak to Johnathan and he inspired us both to get in shape. His story is just remarkable. It was so unbelievable that MMF made it possible for us to speak to Johnathan. Just that interaction with Johnathan really changed our outlook on things. MMF truly cares about you and makes things happen not only in the states but around the world. If you want to know an organization that truly stands by their word, this is that organization. Thanks to Johnathan and MMF we are in a better place mentally and physically. 

Best Regards,

Jackson Stamper and Nate Dees

Military Muscle Foundation has helped my brother who was very depressed last year. They invited him to come to one of the base tours to meet the staff and see what they were a part of. They had a deadlift party and he said it was so intense and it really changed him. He isn’t into body building or working out but it really wanted him to get back in shape. So, he has been following the Military Muscle athlete Randy Cole and loves what he does. So now my brother is getting in shape and is looking to meet Randy this year at the Arnold. He doesn’t know that I wrote this but I want to thank the Military Muscle Foundation for truly helping my brother. 

Sincerely a grateful sister,

I would like to share my experience with Military Muscle Foundation. On the Military Muscle tour, they came to Naval Station Norfolk in October. I never knew about this organization until a friend of mine told me to come check them out. They spoke about how it is key to be a part of something bigger than you. That no matter what branch of military you come from we are all brothers and sisters in arms. If was refreshing to know that this organization is truly helping our active duty members and veterans no matter what branch. So, in December when they said that one of our brothers in arms took his life and they were helping the family I took action. I spread the word over social media, told my unit about it, friends and family. It truly made me feel good to give to an organization that stands by their word and takes action. Thank you Military Muscle Foundation for what you doing in our community continue to help and change lives.
