MISSION STATEMENT *Military term refers to a rucksack which is another name for a backpack. At RUCK UP, Vets can "dump their Ruck" of memories, pressures, and problems. May also refer to all of one's personal gear. To "Ruck Up" is grab your gear, get back on your feet, and go!
A word from- AJ PAIGE, MA-CP, LSW
Many of us know AJ Paige, he’s one of the Counselors at RUCK UP. Along with being the President of the Board, and one of our main driving forces. This video was taken during the AFSP Walk out of Darkness. As Veterans, we have all had a run in with suicide. But a few of us make the connection to it, and PTSD. It’s important to remember There is help and there are those who not only understand but have been there themselves.
To quote AJ,
WHAT DO WE DO?
