Mission 22

I just received my Mission 22 supplies in the mail today and I look forward to discussing my journey as a Marine. Mission 22 is a program that shines a light on the Veterans who struggle with PTSD due to transitioning from military life and the issues behind learning to adjust to civilian life after serving. On average, 22 Veterans commit suicide daily. Suicide is a big issue in the military and our mission is to help those who struggle with PTSD and those who have lost a loved one to PTSD with their journey to recovery.

“A Piece of Cake” by Cupcake Brown

Our next book for month 9 is “A Piece of Cake” by Cupcake Brown
Genre: Biography
No movie
Cupcake Brown was not born into a life of privilege, intellectual stimulation, or professional dynamics. Her younger years were not a model for achieving success; her youth interrupted by violence and emotional turbulence. At 11, she regularly engaged in prostitution, drugs, and alcohol. By age 13, she had graduated to gang activities and street crime. Unfortunately, life would get much worse before it got better as Cupcake spiraled into a life that hovered somewhere above state prison, at best, and death on the mean streets, at worst.
Cupcake’s story is about system failure, societal ignorance, and a little girl who, as a result, resigned to degradation, depression, deprivation, and defeat. To purchase this book click on links below.
