Testimonies

When I saw their fear, I rose and spoke to the nobles, the officials and the rest of the people: “Do not be afraid of them; remember the Lord who is great and awesome, and fight for your brothers, your sons, your daughters, your wives and your houses.

Nehemiah 4:14

Leadership

Founder and President
Norm Stitzel- Disable Marine Veteran and Chaplain

VETSAR was founded in 2014 by Norm Stitzel.
Norm has been embedded in the veteran community for 15 years. All this time, he has been gaining knowledge and experience in veteran issues. In 1993, CPL Stitzel received a medical/honorable discharge from the Marine Corps and found himself with more questions than answers and even less aid and guidance.
He spent years navigating the VA and other veteran organizations to accumulate a network of resources, which he currently uses to help meet the needs of veterans.

The military S.O.P. (Standard Operating Procedure) for NCO’s and officers is to lead the way for their troops and help them succeed. VETSAR continues that tradition in our mission by sharing the experience and resources and benefits available. If something is unavailable, we can improvise, adapt, and overcome the obstacles to complete our mission … TOGETHER!

SEMPER FI!

Mission

SUICIDE PREVENTION IS OUR TOP PRIORITY

The mission of Veterans Search and Rescue is as simple as it sounds.
We don’t wait for veterans to come to us. Instead, we are actively involved and immersed in the community and surrounding areas to make contact with veterans.
We assist them in the transition to civilian life as well as navigate the VA system.

Whether WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, or Peace Time, our mission is to be there for our brother and sister troops.

EVERYTHING we do is to support the mission while promoting veteran issues and needs.
We want to engage the community and country to help and support those who have bravely given so much to protect our freedoms.

Duty stations and orders may change as well as active duty status, but the mission of standing beside our brothers and sisters in arms NEVER will.
