Military Veteran Project
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.
More information is available on the website www.militaryveteranproject.org .
Each year, I travel to different destinations to share the story of a man who forever changed my life and I promise you our story will change your life too! You can search my schedule below for availability for 2014 and I look forward to meeting you!
The Military Veteran Project is a volunteer-driven charity committed to the treatment of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury and suicide prevention for PRE & POST 9/11 Veterans.
ALL Veterans Matter.
The Military Veteran Project is on a mission to decrease military suicides with a goal to end military suicide as we know it through research. We need to get to root of the issue, the brain. With veterans returning home after war with minimal decompression or rehabilitation time, veterans and military families are left trying to cope with the traumatic combat events. Flashbacks, hypersensitivity, nightmares, hyper-vigilance, & insomnia are only a few of the symptoms associated with Post Traumatic Stress, while veterans and active duty service members are fighting a new war within themselves on American soil, government agencies like the Department of Defense and Veterans Administration are facing cutbacks, furloughs and limited on treatment options. 2/3 of veterans suffering with symptoms are being treated with prescription drugs, while the other 1/3 refuse to seeks medical assistance.
Through research we know here at the Military Veteran Project, lives can be saved.
21.8 Million veterans served their country
2.7 Million killed in action
1.5 Million wounded in action
4.3 Million suffer from PTSD (Post traumatic stress disorder).

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.
