The Mission Of Forgotten Not Gone
…is to get suffering veterans physically active and interacting with society.
Forgotten Not Gone is a 501(c)(3) For Purpose organization dedicated to helping save veterans and their families from the destruction of suicide. Through emotional, physical, and spiritual actives sponsored by the organization veterans are encouraged to re-engage with society and are brought out of the isolation that many experience once they return home.
We find the physical activity is on the the surest ways to engage veterans back into an active, social life. Too many veterans go within, shutting off the outside world until it is too late. Right now 22 Veterans are taking their own lives EACH day in America.
Peter Guidry, Co-Founder of Forgotten Not Gone, knows firsthand the struggle and how much this organization aids veterans. Guidry says, “I feel like I’m serving this country again, but I no longer have to be violent to do so.”

Three Key Channels
Outreach through physical activity has a profound effect on a person. We have a fleet of recumbant bikes which we ride with the vets to help them get their mind off things and build endorphins naturally.
Forgotten Not Gone encourages spiritual health and development for our service members. We provide an outlet for veterans suffering from suicidal issues to deal with them on a spiritual level.
Romans 15:4 / Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
