At the Camaraderie Foundation in Orlando, the calls and emails come from veterans across the nation — some suicidal, some traumatized, some haunted by their own thoughts.
“We had five more last night,” said executive director Neftali Rodriguez, shaking his head. “You can raise a million dollars to save the whales. But what about these guys? They’re in pain.”
This weekend, the foundation launches a campaign to raise $2 million by the end of next year — enough to provide free counseling to 1,000 post-Sept. 11 veterans and their families on top of the charity’s current caseload.
