They will also discuss the critically important Heroes To Heroes Foundation mission, that to date has saved more than 300 of our American heroes.

    Also joining the call will be Harrison Manyoma, a Heroes To Heroes mission graduate now serving as the organizations Program Development Manager who will tell his story of how he was holding a gun to his head when Heroes To Heroes intervened and literally saved his life.

    The HTH mission, based in spirituality and reconnection to faith, successfully saves our American heroes who are at serious risk for death by suicide! Key to the mission's success are team journeys of 12 veterans to Israel, where the vets find the strength to open up and begin the process of healing.
