As we express our gratitude [to our veterans], we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.

- President John F. Kennedy

As citizens of the United States, we owe a debt to those who fought for our security and supported our freedom. However, many of the veterans in our own community need our support to lead healthier, more fulfilling lives. The goal of Help The Veterans is to give back to our veterans and to show our gratitude to the heroes of our nation.

Project Welcome Home Troops

Help the Veterans is partnering with national nonprofit Project Welcome Home Troops, in order to combat Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, depression, and a high suicide rate among veterans and servicemen.


 Here is a video of the course participants from the August 2019 Power Breath Meditation Workshop held in Wilmington, DE.



We extend an invitation for all veterans to attend these workshops which are free of cost. Our next workshop will take in January 2020. Please contact us if you are interested.


We have held several workshops in Delaware so far, and the response we recieve each time is incredibly heart-warming and inspiring.

Almost Sunrise

Help the Veterans had several screenings of the film Almost Sunrise over the past year at The Charter School of Wilmington, Christiana and Wilmington Hospitals. The screenings made a powerful impact on our diverse audience. They were attended by several public officials including US Senator Chris Coons as well as veteran leaders, healthcare professionals, and high school students.


The film is an epic story of two Iraq war veterans and their incredible journey of hope and healing as they trek 2,700 miles across America.


  Here is the trailer of Almost Sunrise

    Mental Health

    The National Institute of Health estimates that about 20% of the 2 million veterans returning from Iraq & Afghanistan will suffer from PTSD and depression. 20 veterans commit suicide everyday, and more veterans have died by committing suicide than those killed in the war in Iraq and Afghanistan. For this past year, Help The Veterans' focus has been on mental health issues such as PTSD and moral injury. Through our recent efforts of screening of the film Almost Sunrise and organizing the Power Breath Meditation Workshop, we hope to actively engage with our community and find solutions for our veterans.

    About the Founders

    Help The Veterans was started by Meera and Raghav Garg in 2013 in order to provide greater support and raise awareness in our community about giving back to our veterans. Our current goal is to focus on mental health challenges, such as moral injury, post traumatic stress, and depression. We hope to support veterans as they overcome these invisible, yet daunting, obstacles so that they may lead more peaceful and fulfilling lives.
