-About Mission 22
Mission 22 is a national community supporting active service members, veterans, and their family members, through three areas of focus:
Support and Treatment Programs— for active service members, veterans, and their family members (including ex-spouses and widows/widowers), addressing Post-Traumatic Stress, Traumatic Brain Injury, suicide risk and other challenges.
Social Impact— uniting civilians and the military community to raise awareness of issues active service members, veterans, and their family members face.
Memorials— remembering and honoring service members and veterans through large-scale installations and digital initiatives, while raising awareness for issues faced on home soil.
Mission 22 was founded in 2013 by the three veterans Magnus Johnson, Mike Kissel, and Brad Hubbard, who are all still active on our Board of Directors. Because of their personal battles with PTS and TBI, they have made it their mission to raise awareness, enlist support, and end veteran suicide in America.
The name ‘Mission 22’ came out of a campaign we ran several years ago, called #Mission22, to raise awareness about the number of suicides per day that were being recorded in the veteran community. Due to the popularity of the campaign, we retired our original name, Elder Heart, and began doing business as Mission 22.
Our headquarters are in Sisters, Oregon.
