Join the Shields & Stripes Mission.

WE BELIEVE OUR NATION’S HEROES DESERVE THE BEST.

They Raised Their Hand and Pledged to Protect You.

Now, They Need Your Help.

Our nation’s Military Veterans and First Responders have a 5 x higher risk of experiencing mental health problems due to constant exposure to death and destruction.

Sadly, the current mental health system in America was unprepared for this reality, and today, those brave men and women need help to survive life.

Our Military Veterans and First Responders Secretly Fight Their Own Battles.

Did You Know?

Between 17 and 44 veterans commit suicide daily?

The previous report of 17.2 a day reporting doesn’t account for accidents, undetermined, reported self-harm, or overdoses, resulting in undercounting errors.

In One Year, We Lost…

Firefighters

POLICE OFFICERS

VETERANS

Data reporting is conducted with the intent to raise awareness and has sourced several agencies to capture the most accurate data to reflect the problem we are trying help fix. If you feel the data does not reflect the current situation, please contact: contact@shieldsandstripes.org

This Memorial Day, we honor the brave souls who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. 

Out of the pain and trauma of losing heroes, our nonprofit @shieldsandstripes was created. Every step we take in giving back is guided by the cherished memories of those we have lost. 

Our co-founder, Steven Nisbet’s story, is a testament of turning pain and hardship into impactful action - of finding a way to live intentionally and to positively impact the veteran community, who sacrifices so much. 

“Memorial Day can feel quite heavy - don’t let the rucksack fill up today. Those who have given their lives for our county and in service of their county, they would never want you to carry this burden around.” - Scott Miller, @shieldsandstripes Ambassador @asmiller9496 

This Memorial Day, honor, remember and commemorate by living the day with positive memories and hope.
