  • Have a genuine love and respect for veterans and all active military members. You do not have to be a veteran.
  • Have a cell phone, and be willing to take calls/texts at any time from a veteran wanting to talk

You do not have to be a trained professional to help someone in need. You don’t have to be a veteran to empathize with their situation. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to because they feel alone and unheard by those who are closest to them.  They may feel too ashamed to reach out for help from their friends and family and can benefit from speaking to an anonymous individual.  By not feeling judged, they can feel more comfortable about opening up and and talking about their situation.


As a Battle Buddy, you will have a profile listed in our public app, and anyone will be able to find you and call you if they want to talk. Your commitment is to simply be someone who cares and to listen if a veteran ever calls. That’s it. Don’t judge; don’t push. Just having someone to talk to who genuinely cares and will listen can make a substantial difference. If you do feel there is a crisis, you can call 911 or have someone else call.

We understand that not everyone may be comfortable with being a Battle Buddy. There are other ways you can help as a Veterans’ Advocate. We encourage you to join Team 22KILL in connecting and growing the veteran support system. Become a volunteer for our events and community projects, and share this page with your network of friends, family, and every veteran you know.
