Dancing with the Stars, Iraq hero is shining his light on many veterans by teaming up with Danny Watson to support veterans. Together they are giving back by building homes and raising money to enhance the lives of many. There love for veteran services is not only gratifying but has enabled Noah to push forward after his injuries.
In 2005 Noah was injured in Iraq, losing his left arm and leg. His injuries lead to mental and emotional distress. For five years he battled the dark life of depression, with his family by his side. Understanding the importance of being there for his children, He began to challenge himself to change and make a difference. Through rehabilitation and volunteering, he has been able to overcome his struggles.
Although Noah’s life had been altered and presented with new challenges, he is extremely grateful to have had a safe home to return to. There are 3.8 million veterans with service connect disabilities and 9.4 million veterans over the age of 65. Noah’s soft spot for veterans inspired his decision to partner with Danny Watson of Team Depot, an organization that builds homes for these families all over the country.
Men and women, who have fought for our nation, have done work to forever respect and be proud of. They are no longer just husbands and wives; they are our hero’s who have given their time, energy, skills and talents to ensure a better place to live for fellow Americans. They’ve chosen to be our rock, our force, and our pathway to freedom. In those quietest moments only their minds can imagine where their lives have been and where they would like to be.
There can be light at the end of the tunnel for every veteran, through volunteering in your community and being a voice for those who struggle silently. Veterans with families deserve to live full lives returning home. They need resources to aid in their mental and physical stability. They need to know we care and appreciate everything they’ve done.
They also need more amazing people like Noah Galloway and Danny Watson who are passionate about helping others. There is nothing more gratifying than giving back. What veterans have given us is more than we could every repay them. But as healthy and able individuals, our time and service can make a huge difference.
No matter what has happened or what you may be struggling with, with love and support, you can overcome. Sharing your story can be a blessing and an eye-opener in the lives of others.
