Sabre Systems, Inc. (Sabre) announced it will make a charitable donation of $10,000.00 to the Warfighter Advance Organization. The donation will be used to combat Veteran Suicide through successful reintegration and resilience of the Warfighter.
Veteran suicide rates have tragically doubled civilian suicide rates since the September 11, 2001 terror attacks. According to Sabre’s President and Chief Operating Officer (COO), Mr. Glen Ives, a retired Naval Officer, “We are truly honored and blessed to have so many veterans as part of our Sabre family, they make us a stronger and better company. Appreciating their sacrifice and dedication to make our world a better and safer place requires action. Sabre is committed to giving back to the veteran community and their families through discussion, volunteerism, and donations.” Along with his wife, Mrs. Barbara Ives, also a retired U.S. Navy Captain with almost 27 years of service, they contribute their personal time to share their experiences and offer support. Sabre is honored to contribute to this cause that holds such a personal connection to our leadership and workforce. Investing in our veterans is an investment in our people, our communities, and our future.
Warfighter Advance conducts an Advance 7 Day program located just outside the nation’s capital. Over 900 veterans have completed the program, with a 0% alumni suicide rate. The 7 day training operation is meticulously designed to carefully advance the warfighter in 8 critical areas of reintegration and resiliency that focus on training, spiritual and physical wellness, peer reliance, psychological education and care, and setting realistic expectations. All warfighters attend 100% free with costs covered by donations and fundraising. Alumni of the program receive specialized training and professional support, 24/7 and 365 day-a-year access to Warfighter Advance staff, and a monthly check in to ensure continued program success and wellness.
