About the PTSD Collab

Let's do something meaningful together


An online network established to:

  • support trauma sufferers of all backgrounds (60% of Americans will experience PTSD in their lifetime)
  • address the issue of suicide among veterans, law enforcement officers, first responders, ICE and Border Patrol officers.
  • highlight to the American public and the world the many valuable things that these groups do every day in the service of our nation and our communities
  • provide an alternative platform for connecting, sharing and supporting conservative news and points of view supportive of our military, veterans and law enforcement and other first responders.


We are your audience:

  • A social media network of FOUR MILLION veteran and conservative members and growing.
  • A syndicated network of 200 websites and growing – (1000 US and 200 UK by Dec 2019; 10,000 US and 2000 EU by Dec 2020).
  • The largest independent, privately owned, nonpartisan media syndication platform.
  • The only community-run social media platform supporting and sharing conservative points of view and celebrating the daily lives of veterans, law enforcement officers, first responders, ICE and border patrol officers.
  • The only marketing and socially-conscious platform using geo-location to the advantage of the end user and to communicate.
  • The only platform NOT scraping your data and selling it to advertisers.

We are a team:
