What We Do

Lutz Buddy Up

A Lutz Buddy up is a social club that connects military and first responder for an evening of food, fun, and comradery. Those who serve country and community form bonds that can carry forward for the rest of their lives. Here,  peer support, community building, and overall well-being are promoted




Lutz isn’t the only one prescribed benzodiazepines and died because of it. We know there are many out there who experienced similar situations and lived. We want to hear your story. If you have lost your veteran, we want to hear their story also. We need your voices to be heard to make change.

#IwasLutz, providing a voice for veterans, advocating for VA reform and implementing solutions for real-life matters. Tell us your story below and help spread the word by using the hashtag #IwasLutz.



Lutz Buddy Up Mobile App

Utilizing cutting edge technology and developed by military veteran programmers this app is unlike anything currently on the market. Military and first responders will be able to access the app for free on IOS & Android platforms. With an anticipated launch date of  mid-2017, servicemen and women across the nation can connect with each other and provide a self-sustaining support system available 24/7.

Coming Soon!

The annual Live To Tell Ride honors military lost to PTS and spreads awareness about the solution to this epidemic.  It’s time We the People Stand Up and “Fight for Those Who Fought for Us”.



LCpl Janos V Lutz PTS Memorial Wall

This PTS Memorial Wall is to Honor & Remember our military who have been lost as a result of Post-Traumatic Stress. Remember your loved one by submitting their photo with a short bio to be included on the wall.



Community Training

1st Responder Training on how to engage veterans with PTS are available. Assisting with being able to identify veterans experiencing PTS and properly handle the situation can prevent any unfortunate consequences or possible loss of a veteran’s or civilian’s life (contingent upon available funding). Applied Suicide Intervention Skills Training (ASIST) is available for Lutz Buddy Up Davie members provided by U.S. Southern Command. ASIST is a two-day workshop designed for family, friends, and other community members who may be the first to talk with a person at risk, but have little or no training.
