Donny O’ Malley, The Love Story behind Irreverent Warriors

Donny O’ Malley

The Love Story behind Irreverent Warriors

Meet Donny O’ Malley

After losing comrades to suicide, Donny O’Malley founded Irreverent Warriors. A non-profit organization bringing warriors together. Regardless of rank or branch. Currently, Donny coordinates gatherings. However, his hope is soldiers everywhere feel empowered to orchestrate events all over the country.

Similarly, he hopes warriors see how I.W. provides safe spaces for expressing hurt and trauma. Donny talks about isolation being at the root of suicidal tendencies. Hence his desire to create space for communion between warriors who might be hurting. Above all, Donny recognizes how these relationships ease the pain soldiers experience. 


“It was harder to lose a guy to suicide than to lose someone in combat.”
