Forgive me if this is a dupe, fellas, but I'm on my phone. This story seems dupe worthy - I was catching up on SOFREP when I saw this interview with Max Martini. He's trying to raise funds to increase awareness about veterans with TBI/PTSD by crowdfunding a movie:

I can respect that. I believe he's getting some of his Unit cast members reunited to participate in the movie. Concerning the charities:

"Ross: Which organizations will benefit from your film, Will Gardner?

Max: The aforementioned (Brains Scans For Warriors), ‘Vet Hunters‘, ‘Higher Ground‘ and ‘Volunteers of America.’ ‘Vet Hunters’ is dedicated to ending homelessness for all military veterans. The team is made up of 90% Iraq/Afghanistan veterans. They actually search out homeless vets and pull them off the streets putting them into drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs or getting them much needed shelter. ‘Higher Ground’ has a terrific TBI and PTSD program and does a three year follow-up with every soldier that passes through it. ‘Volunteers of America’ is one of the nation’s largest service providers to homeless veterans. They have an amazing program."

I really hope this gets more traction. I find this part of the interview kinda sad actually:

"Ross: How is the gofundme.com campaign going?

Max: The truth – not as well as I thought it would. I thought that my Facebook page alone would bring in a half million. We are at 16,200.00 we need 2.5 million. We still have just under a month. The response and support getting the message out has been incredible, the donations have not. But I have faith. I recently did a FOX TV interview that gave us a spike in donations. I am doing an interview on CBS Wednesday. I’m moving forward. That’s all I know."

BTW, does anyone have a link to his FB page ?

Just pledged $115.

For just over $2K you can spend two hours at the range with Dirt Diver. Wonder if he'd be taking his .50 BMG?

It's a worthy cause - So, I'm in for 65 bucks.
