Quick Reaction Force 22

Who We Are and What We Do

Our name – Quick Reaction Force 22 – came about after a report was released in 2012 from the VA’s Suicide Data team. This report analyzed the death certificates from 21 states from 1999 to 2011 and concluded that on average, 22 Veterans commit suicide every day. That is just over 8,000 Veteran Suicides a year.

For those who do not know – Quick Reaction Force is a military term used for a unit capable of quickly responding to a developing situation. Our ability to quickly and effectively respond has been a key component of our success.

Quick Reaction Force 22 came about after a handful of us, Veterans and Civilians – personally affected by Veteran Suicide – decided we had to do everything we could to help our American Veterans.

What started out as reaching out to our Brothers and Sisters we knew needed us, it soon turned into Veterans we had never met contacting us – some asking questions while others were at that critical moment to ensure survival.

As Quick Reaction Force 22 has grown, our focus remains the same – Do everything we can to help our American Veterans.

We now offer programs that include professional services such as resume reviews or financial planning, an offering of various reintroduction services to aid with the transition from Military to Civilian life and we also are developing Physical Fitness and Cooking education material focused on the mental and physical advantages of taking care of your body.

No one at QRF22 is paid – we are all volunteers. 100% of all proceeds go directly to assisting Veterans. All communications are strictly confidential.

If you need anything – please contact us at info@qrf22.org or find us on social media.

“Love is not patronizing and charity isn’t about pity, it is about love. Charity and love are the same — with charity you give love, so don’t just give money but reach out your hand instead.”
