Virtual World environments help SAVE LIVES! We proved this when we helped prevent six suicide attempts from our former virtual onshore outsourcing business; which employed over 500 severely injured veterans and special needs individuals.
 
Our mandate is to help Active Duty, Transitioning, Veterans, and Military Families fight the effects of PTSD and live productive and satisfying lives.
 
What Makes Our Solutions Work? – COMMUNITY
Human interaction is the goal of these worlds. Our virtual worlds provide so much more than just training. Anything you can imagine – we can build!

By entering an immersive collaboration environment, a member’s avatar is the graphical representation of the user or the user’s “alter ego” or character. One can even customize their avatar using their real face. Avatars are three-dimensional graphical representations, allowing interaction with multiple users. Always wanted to feel what it’s like to be slender? Want to be tall for once in your life? Be that ideal self-image.
 
Virtual Immersion allows one to feel the feelings of your 3D persona avatar's actions.... as if you were there.

Testimonials
 
Veteran Fighting PTSD Testimonial by Travis D.
 
“On the second of April I was introduced to a group of Senior Business Management Consultants that ARE helping vets and families that suffer from PTSD. It was a little strange at first to open up to complete strangers but what this past month has taught me is that you have to put it all out on the table. The more I share with people my story the better I feel. I also believe my story inspires to help more.
  
The possibilities are endless in this application. As I began to understand it made me very hopeful in that my healing will empower more soldiers and vets to get the help they deserve and need. It began to help me understand myself and why I was placed on this earth to do. I want to share my whole experience with the world so that others will learn to achieve the same results.
 
This weekend has been really rough on me as it is Easter weekend. I am separated from my kids and my friends. I am sitting around in a hotel room waiting to get into a program at the VA. I spent most of the day crying and reliving my past. The group of people at Sponsor A Vet that are part of this AWESOME idea have become a family to me. They listen and support me and always give words of encouragement through my dark times. I will be able to go into their virtual world and talk with other vets and help each other.
 
I am very excited to be part this. My life is beginning to change for the best. Sometimes God makes you live in the dark so that when you come out to the light you can better appreciate it and understand that he has a plan and will never will leave you.
 
I recently had a chance to take a look at the virtual word for the vets, families and soldiers. As soon as I got into it I was awe struck at how it all works. My mind was going 100 mph with ideas and questions.
 
The possibilities for this can go as far as my imagination can take it. I was so stoked and happy to see this, it put a smile on my face; which I haven't had for the last month.
 
The idea for this program is something that has been missing for the treatment of PTSD. I was so happy to know that current Soldiers will have the chance to get help now without the fear of hurting their careers."

"Soldiers will be able to stay completely anonymous and will be able to get the treatment that they need and deserve. Transitioning Soldiers will have the opportunity to get a whole lot better assistance than what is currently offered. Soldiers will have a real chance to get careers after their service. I cannot put into words how honored I am to be a part of this.”

How the organization supports veterans

Sponsor A Vet Life (SAVL), is on a Mission to roll out a proven solution for many of the challenges Active Duty, Disabled Veterans, Veterans and their families experience. 

Sponsor A Vet Life Mission is to provide full collaboration Communities utilizing virtual reality tools to help stop the 22 Veteran PTSD suicides per day. All communications occur in a 3D interactive, immersive virtual environment. We've successfully used these tools in the past to save lives and will continue to save more veterans with your help. 

SAVL collaborates with seasoned professionals in various fields that fill the void in today's veteran services. We have over 100 Senior Business Management Consultants, all with over 20 years experience that have joined our team as mentors to help guide transitioning veterans through opportunities and solutions. There is no fee for the veteran to receive services. Sponsorship monthly license fees are paid by corporations with veteran hiring initiatives, individuals, and donations from our equine/canine nonprofit therapy training groups. 

SAVL has urgent concerns regarding if previously diagnosed disabled veterans know they have PTSD and are aware how this condition can negatively impact their lives. We have even greater concerns identifying how many physically disabled veterans are included in the 22 veteran PTSD suicides per day. 

SAVL feels strongly that if our 3D Immersive program is offered to disabled veterans who are not aware they have PTSD, (which we feel strongly most will as trauma is associated with disability), were given the opportunity to receive the treatment AND receive remote job training, Community 24/7 support and feel like they are living a "normal" social life in an immersive, interactive environment, we feel confident not only their quality of life would improve, but it would have a direct impact on decreasing veteran suicides. 

Our main focus is to provide proven job training in a supportive virtual world Community by our Senior Business Management Consultants team, each possessing decades of experience in every industry imaginable. The training is accomplished remotely in the veteran's own comfortable home environment and will provide the confidence and business skills to work remotely for a Corporate Sponsor or we will train the veteran how to start their own business online. We also provide project work for veterans with PTSD to earn additional income while training if the veteran possess basic project skills requirements. For those that do not have the basic skills, we train. We have over 5 years successful experience with a similar process. 

Severely injured veterans are able to navigate in our virtual platform with assistive technology. Completely paralyzed veterans are able to receive training for employment positions, eTherapy, mentoring, Community support 24/7 and Socializing, which for many is the first form of "normal" interactive socializing experienced in groups. 

Severely injured veterans feel the feelings of walking, running, dancing, driving a car, mountain climbing, swimming, playing sports, social activities and can enjoy all the advantages with former brother and sisters in arms, family and friends. Brothers and Sisters in Arms stay connected. 

SAVL collaborates with veteran nonprofits to help increase donations by cloning services to be accessed virtually, in-world. 

Let us work together to help many disabled veterans that are almost totally isolated and have a very limited life.
