Ma Deuce Deuce (MA22) was founded by a few Marines and a big beautiful truck. After attending a free 5 day program called Operation Restored Warrior (ORW), John Cohen and Dennis Addesso decided to start something to make programs like ORW known. With another ORW alumni, Walter (Thomas) Kiselow and a glorious F350 wrapped in a military theme, they set out to local events raising awareness of the 22 veterans who commit suicide.
MA22 is dedicated to providing information and education regarding the network of services available for military veterans classified with special needs including Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other disabilities and providing the opportunity to experience treatment outside of the Veteran Affairs (VA) Administration facilities and programs at no cost to the veteran. MA22 will provide this network to these veterans in an effort to eradicate the estimated 22 daily veteran suicides epidemic.
