About Military Veteran project sacrificed book
On April 10, 2011 my world was forever changed when I received the phone call that my husband was wounded in action, while deployed in the Zhari District of Afghanistan. Through our faith in God, Love for our nation and support from thousands of people around the world, Jamie & I lived each day to the fullest through trial & tribulation, we triumphed!
After my husband passed away on March 21, 2012, I was left alone laying next to his grave site wondering if I would ever wake up from this dream. How could I made a difference without Jamie by my side? I spent months reading a journal I kept after he was wounded in the Zhari District of Afghanistan in April 2011 and watching our video diary we kept inside the hospital. Each day I heard Jamie's voice and was able to look in his eyes, each day my husband inspired me. Even though he was not physically here, I felt his courage and his dedication, I chose to live for him by carrying on his memory and his dying wish to care for his fellow service members.
Sacrificed Memoirs of SSG Jamie & Melissa Jarboe will be available soon! 100% of all proceeds from book sales go to military charities to care for our American Heroes who have selflessly served our nation.
Since Jamie's passing, I have dedicated myself to the service of honoring and empowering our Military Veterans by creating the Military Veteran Project a 501c3 Non Profit Charity that is 100% volunteer.

Currently, veterans have to wait for nearly 200 days for benefits from the VA because of backlog? Or that cutbacks have forced VA hospitals to cut staffing and costs which directly affects the care our veterans receive? 22 veterans commit suicide a day?
Millions of veterans need medical help for PTSD, TBI's and peer to peer support and with your donation today, you can help! There are millions of veterans and service members who are not able to access or receive prompt medical care, thousands of members of our armed forces have been injured in the line of duty defending our freedom and protecting America. Due to funding and budget cuts they are unable to receive the medical treatments that would facilitate their return to a productive civilian life. While the Department of Veterans Affairs does their best to provide medical services, the scope of covered services is limited.
At MVP we recognize the service, honor and selfless contributions made by ALL our Military Veterans! We provide financial assistance for desperately needed therapies and services for injuries like Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), that are not currently provided or covered by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We feel that in return it is important for MVP & our nation to help each of our veterans with reintegration in the civilian community.
In order to do so, MVP will help raise awareness in our communities by giving support and aid to our Military Veterans & their families. MVP will act as a liaison for military veterans and family with the veterans administration and assist with navigation through the military medical system. By doing so through education, reintegration and service programs.
The Military Veteran Project provides financial assistance for medical services and treatments to veterans who have served our country. ALL Veterans are welcomed at the Military Veteran Project! Pre 9/11 and post 9/11 service members and veterans are eligible to request medical assistance.
Military Veteran Project has a network of medical professionals to provide quality care for service members and veterans who have been put on waiting lists or denied treatments by the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration.
Since August 2012, Military Veteran Project has assisted thousands of military veterans and families with medical assistance from MRI, CT Scans, X-rays, medical transportation, transfer to civilian hospitals, counseling, family temporary housing, airfare and prescription reimbursement. Most needed therapies are ongoing rather than a one-time fix. Military Veteran Project has one goal and that is advocating, educating and honoring our military veterans and we need your help!

Sacrificed Memoirs of SSG Jamie & Melissa Jarboe
"On April 10, with less than a year to plan our wedding, I began to focus on our future. As I was driving to my office, my phone rang with an unfamiliar number. Thinking it was Jamie, I answered the phone quickly, but the voice on the other ...end didn’t sound anything like my husband. The voice was cold and direct as he asked to speak with Melissa Jarboe. My body grew weak as the voice introduced himself as a soldier from 1st Infantry division, Fort Riley, KS.
“Ma’am, I’m going to read this script verbatim. I do not have any answers to your questions. On the 10th day of April 2011 4th cavalry/ 4th regiment Able troop was on patrol in the Zhari District of Afghanistan when Able troop took enemy fire. SGT Jamie Darrell Jarboe was wounded by enemy fire as a casualty. "
100% of net proceeds will be donated to the Military Veteran Project to provide financial support for medical treatments for military veterans and active duty service members.
