NEWARK, OH – Today, U.S. Senator Rob Portman (R-OH) participated in Save A Warrior’s cohort graduation ceremony. Established in 2012, Save a Warrior is nonprofit organization aimed at saving the lives of veterans and first responders suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. The Save A Warrior week-long "War Detox" program specializes in connecting active duty military, returning veterans, and first responders experiencing psychological trauma such as post-traumatic stress disorder and helping them heal. 

“It was an honor to have the opportunity to participate in Save A Warrior’s cohort graduation ceremony at Warrior Village today,” said Portman. “The veterans I spoke to showed great courage in banding together as a cohort to support one another in their recovery. Since its establishment in 2012, Save a Warrior has grown into an invaluable resource for more than 1,000 warriors in need of help healing from the invisible wounds of war. Our veterans deserve the best care we can offer, and I will continue to work in the Senate to ensure we don’t forget the men and women who have served.”
