Former United States Marine and veterans advocate Kenny Joseph DeAndrea formed the Patriot Project USA in 2015 to address the nations veteran suicide problem.
Having been diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and suicide ideation, he took control of his own recovery process and developed real solutions that proved successful in restoring peace in veterans lives as well as his own.

These days Kenny travels the country speaking on the subject of Veteran suicide, discussing how to develop "a life plan" and a plan for life. He has often said, "The injury maybe be with you for life but so are the treatment tools and that brings about hope and sometimes hope is enough.
