Our organization, established in 2011, Bridging The Gap of Georgia (BTGG) is a 501(c) (3) foundation that is dedicated to assisting our Veterans. Bridging The Gap of Georgia (BTGG) works DIRECTLY with the Veterans on a one-on-one basis - we're NOT a call center. No one in our organization collects a salary - everyone works on a volunteer basis. We don't just listen to their stories and tell the Veterans where to go get help; WE ARE THE HELP. We provide food, and shelter, and educational assistance DIRECTLY to as many Veterans as we can afford to. There is no long, tedious, confusing application process for them. If we have the space available in one of our residential centers, a Veteran is invited to come live at one of those centers that very same day. Bridging The Gap of Georgia (BTGG) is a 501 (c) (3) organization that receives 100% of its funding from the private sector. This organization does not accept or seek Department of Defense or Veterans Administration funding. Every tax-deductible dollar received helps Bridging The Gap (BTG) bring a comprehensive range of professional services to homeless Veterans and veterans in need. We are taking your calls at 646-564-9805.

Upcoming Broadcasts

the relationship between the VA and many of the university medical centers that are in bed with them, we will touch on the well over 300,000 veterans that were exposed to Agent Orange who dies when the VA refused to acknowledge the well known cancer precurosors that exposure spawned nor the ishemic heart conditions. we will take a stroll down memory lane and recall the report McDonald delivered to congress early last year in which he declared that more veterans die of suicide who are not involved in VA care than of those who are and the report by NBC news 6 weeks later that detailed how 80% of the veterans they surveyed who had attempted suicide had in fact been "treated" by the VA in the 30 days leading up to their lest attempt. We will cover the THOUSANDS of TBI medical incident reports that the DoD removed from the records of the people who suffered even severe TBI throughout the 60s, 70s, and 80s who were kept in service AND the new technology that can time stamp those injuries today! Ialso know what happpened to those records too and where they might be located providing they were not destroyed follwing the VA's refusal to take custody of them in 2014. And the fact that chronic homelessness is well known symptom of post concussion syndrome. We Will speak of McDonalds desire to limit the evidence submission period. This is of course is the direct result of the information age allowing more evidence to be collected at a faster rate then ever before. So I guess he wants to limit the time frame of that to something under the DECADES it can take to get a LEGITIMATE claim approved right?
