After being recognized for his incredible commitment of $1 million to launch the Wins for Warriors initiative, Justin Verlander is an advocate for our veterans by supporting our servicemembers and their families while they are on their way to recovery.

MUTUAL ADMIRATION:  Justin Verlander is flanked by two military fans at a Detroit Tigers game.  His Wins for Warriors program is aimed at providing much-needed mental health services to service men and women.

Justin Verlander: Sadly, many don’t seek help because of the stigma associated with receiving mental healthcare.  These men and women are taught to be big and strong; some come home and need our help, but they won’t be the first to raise their hand. This program is a way to reach out and show our support.
