New Order from the USS Midway!

New Cookbook Orders!

I received two new orders – one from the USS Midway store for 50 cookbooks of the first edition, and one for 10, also of the first edition, for the Marine Corps Museum.  I am hoping to make another donation to the Semper Fi Fund before the end of the year.

AN IMPORTANT NOTE FROM KAREN GUNTHER – FOUNDER OF THE SEMPER FI FUND ABOUT PTSD

Dear Supporters,

Semper Fi Fund has developed a new video series, including the documentary, “In Your Corner,” to address issues that our service members face. These videos share unique insights and powerful advice and support our mission by providing important resources to our service members and their families, and, most importantly — hope.

The Semper Fi Fund has been helping with Post Traumatic Stress since our inception in 2004. We recognized the need to reach out to our service members about combat stress 13 years ago, long before many were acknowledging this as an issue of the Iraq and Afghanistan Wars.

In 2009 Semper Fi Fund produced “Cover Me,” a video that was a frank look at combat stress. Tens of thousands of “Cover Me” videos were given out to service members, military units and medical personnel. It saved lives. It continues to be viewed from our website. Many have asked the Fund to update the video and we listened. “In Your Corner” has been produced to create a better understanding of PTS, its causes and effects, and, ultimately, powerful reasons for hope.

Suicides continue to climb. There is much work to do. Please help us continue the dialogue of Hope!

“In Your Corner” and the resource videos can be found on our website:  www.semperfifund.org.

We encourage you to share a link to the videos on your social media channels to help let others know these valuable resources are available to them.

All of my best,
Karen
