The inspiring story and mission of a band called Vetted, founded by wounded warrior and drummer SSG (ret) Paul Delacerda. Established in 2009, Vetted is a nationally recognized wounded warrior band comprising combat wounded veterans from Iraq, Afghanistan, and first responders.

 

The band's primary goal is to use music as a positive tool for veteran transition and support, aiming to reduce the alarming rates of veteran suicides by raising awareness and providing resources for healing and employment. With a focus on resiliency, military experiences, and the "never quit" attitude, Vetted emphasizes the message that "nothing comes without sacrifice."

 

The band's mission also includes suicide prevention training, and substance abuse programs through military and civilian partnerships. Moreover, the members of Vetted are committed to supporting and empowering their fellow warriors, highlighting the importance of unwavering support and understanding during the challenging transition to civilian life.
