OneShare Health Announces Partnership With Shield of Faith Missions

Christian Health Share Unites with Veteran Non-Profit to Help Restore Purpose, Resiliency, and Life After Service

IRVING, Texas - September 23, 2020 - (

​​​​​​OneShare Health, an ACA-exempt Health Care Sharing Ministry and Christian non-profit, has just partnered with Shield of Faith Missions, a 501c(3) organization that provides assistance to U.S. veterans of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard.

“Empowering warriors to find purpose and be resilient,” Shield of Faith (SOF) Missions was founded by Dr. Damon and Dayna Friedman; Dr. Friedman is a 20-year veteran and retired Lieutenant Colonel within the special operations community. SOF Missions exists to combat the veteran suicide crisis faced by countless men and women. Having served on four combat tours to Iraq and Afghanistan, Dr. Friedman has brought home his duty to fulfill a higher calling.

The Resiliency Project, which is funded 100 percent by generous donors, is a holistic four-component program facilitated by a group of former military members and medical professionals known as “The Resiliency Project Selection Committee.” These individuals work together to select candidates who apply to receive a complete and free-of-charge treatment plan encompassing psychological, social, spiritual, and physical programs.

“These military personnel put their lives on the line for each of us,” said Victoria Damone, Executive Vice President of Strategic Partnerships at OneShare Health. “I am sincerely looking forward to learning from Shield of Faith Missions as to how we, as a community of believers, can serve and help our Veterans afflicted with PTSD. I believe that it is a true blessing through faith and partnership that we can bring to light the resources SOF Missions has built.”

Through their national network of partners, civilian health care providers, and non-profit organizations like OneShare Health, SOF Missions continues to serve a population that is in dire need. Since 2016, they have served 82 veterans through the Resiliency Project; 60 groups have used their veteran resources, 2,200 veterans received connect care, and 100,000 people were present at over 80 speaking engagements across the country. In 2020, the organization aims to increase its impact five-fold, which will provide warriors with full-spectrum care across the nation.

“Our veterans have answered the call to protect us for a long time,” said CEO of OneShare Health Alex Cardona, “and now it is our turn to help and protect them after their service. Shield of Faith Missions is an essential organization that is giving voices back to those who feel they've been left behind. As a Christian, I feel called to help my brothers and sisters in need, especially the ones who’ve lost hope. As an American, I am honored to walk beside such an amazing organization and contribute to their cause.”

All contributions to SOF Missions go directly to support veteran programs. Anyone who is interested in learning more about this organization and how they can be of service to at-risk veterans is invited to visit OneShare Health’s Mission in Motion page or follow the Christian charity on social media.

Soleimani, a general who became Iran icon by targeting US

Oct 20, 2020

TEHRAN, Iran — For Iranians whose icons since the Islamic Revolution have been stern-faced clergy, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani widely represented a figure of national resilience in the face of four decades of U.S. pressure. For the U.S. and Israel, he was a shadowy figure in command of Iran's proxy forces, responsible for fighters in Syria backing President Bashar Assad and for the deaths of American troops in Iraq. Solemani survived the horror of Iran’s long war in the 1980s with Iraq to take control of the Revolutionary Guard’s elite Quds Force, responsible for the Islamic Republic’s foreign campaigns.

Streep, Miranda and Stone are named as Met Gala co-0chairs

Oct 20, 2020

NEW YORK — Next year's Met Gala may be the closest we'll ever come to getting a Miranda Priestly moment at the starry event. Meryl Streep has been named as a co-chair of the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute. The Oscar-winner played Priestly, a thinly veiled fictional version of Vogue editor Anna Wintour, in the movie "The Devil Wears Prada." Wintour clearly has no hard feelings because she selected Streep as a co-chair along with Lin-Manuel Miranda and fellow Oscar-winner Emma Stone. Designer Nicolas Ghesquiere rounds out the group. The gala's theme is "About Time: Fashion and Duration," which...

New Sept. 11 exhibit stages the hunt for Osama bin Laden

Oct 20, 2020

NEW YORK — Declassified U.S. government documents and artifacts will be part of a new exhibit about the decade-long search for Osama bin Laden at the site of the New York terrorist attack he masterminded. "Revealed: The Hunt for Bin Laden" opens Nov. 15 at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum, a multimedia account of the mission that ended with bin Laden's death in Pakistan in 2011. With direct access to the operatives who led America's feverish post-9/11 hunt for the top terrorist, the exhibit presents a sort of whodunit drama with graphics, videos and the voices of the...

China says US has 'weaponized' visas to target exchanges

Oct 20, 2020

BEIJING — China on Wednesday accused the U.S. of having "weaponized" the issuance of visas following the reported inability of a top Chinese space program official to obtain permission to travel to a key conference in Washington. Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters that the head of the Chinese delegation to the International Astronautical Congress wasn't able to obtain a visa following an Oct. 12 interview, making it difficult for Chinese representatives to attend important events at the meeting. Reports said the vice chairman of the China National Space Administration, Wu Yanhua, had planned to attend the congress. Hua...

Cracks were found in a key structural part on 38 Boeing jets

Oct 20, 2020

Inspections of some older Boeing jets have turned up structural cracks in more than three dozen of them, raising a new safety issue for the company already dealing with two deadly crashes involving a newer version of the same plane. Boeing said Thursday that airlines worldwide have inspected 810 planes following an order from U.S. safety regulators. Of those, 38 — or 5% — had "findings" requiring repairs. Airlines are under orders to inspect certain Boeing 737 NG planes for cracking in a part that helps keep wings attached to the fuselage. Boeing declined to identify which airlines found problems,...
