FORT WAYNE, Ind. (www.incnow.tv) – A Veteran-based motorcycle club holds a fundraiser for veterans suffering Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome and suicide prevention.

All give some and some give all. How can we repay the men and women who serve in uniform after they come home?

The Men of War, a veteran-based motorcycle club, held a charity benefit for Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Awareness and veteran suicide prevention.

It was held at Quaker Steak and Lube on Coliseum Boulevard Saturday afternoon.

Congressman Marlin Stutzman says PTSD really affects our veterans and we need to be there for them.

"It's about getting the veterans into the VA for therapy, for treatment, and for helping veterans understand there's help there for them,” Stutzman said.

The Men of War motorcycle club exists to prevent veteran suicide, support veteran causes and provide direct support to the surviving families of their fallen brothers.
