On December 3rd, 2016 Disgruntled Vets will be holding their second event to battle homelessness among vets and raise money for DV Farm. The crew at Disgruntled Vets has teamed up with Deacon Taylor from the Veteran Party of America and Decelerate Your Life to put on a fundraiser that will go directly to DV Farm to help them continue their righteous cause. Ryan from Disgruntled Vets told American Military News that they were inspired to hold the event because:
We’re pushing for veterans helping veterans because no one really knows how to help us, besides us.
DV Farm is a unique program created by Mike Rivers, a formerly homeless veteran who has seen it all. He designed DV Farm to be a temporary housing facility that addresses the needs of veterans who do not have the means to generate a stable living situation for themselves. The farm also provides a stable food program to ensure that residents’ nutritional needs are properly met.

For just $10 you can join veterans in the Colorado area at Platte River Bar & Grill at 5995 S Santa Fe Dr, Littleton, CO 80120. Your $10 entry fee will go directly to the charity. T-shirts will be sold and raffles will be held will all proceeds going directly to veterans in need. The creators and sponsors of this event hope to make it an annual tradition but they can’t do it without community support.
American Military News supports their cause and we hope you will too. Ryan from Disgruntled Vets explained the importance of creating community support by telling us:
It’s a program that I really believe in. It’s ran by a prior homeless vet and the things he’s doing on his own are absolutely amazing he’s 10% funded by the community. There are no big partners behind him.
We hope that anyone in the area will stop by Platte River Bar & Grill on December 3rd at 17:00 to show their support. You can buy your tickets here.
