Who We Are
We’re a diverse team of veteran business owners, community leaders and advocates who believe passionately in continued service to community and to country. We represent every level of military service, age and gender – but we’re united in our commitment to our brothers and sisters in arms.
What We Are
We’re a force multiplier, in that we bring organizations and resources together to solve friction points that impede the successful transition of service members. We pride ourselves in not reinventing the wheel, when “wheels of progress” already exist within other veteran service providers. Rather, we seek to enhance programs through collaborative and adaptive strategies that enable effective and streamline solutions.
How We Do It
As a grant-maker, we stay clear of roadblocks, political impasses or divisive dead-ends. We forever subscribe to the belief that our collective unity is greater than the sum of individual talents and résumés. We think and live in what is possible and positive for our nation and fellow veteran.
“The willingness with which our young people are likely to serve in any war, no matter how justified, shall be directly proportional to how they perceive how the veterans of earlier wars were treated and appreciated by their nation”
Our Philosophy & Logo
We seek bonds with those who believe in the power of selfless unity of effort. Those who seek no individual recognition, but rather the continued fulfillment of the promise of this nation’s current generation of warriors.
Our logo signifies “The Nobility of Service” and our aspirational values.
Conviction & Courage
To lead others where others dare not, to ask questions that others do not and to seek solutions where others cannot.
Between veterans & organizations, so the whole is greater than the sum of their parts.
Selflessness and focused determination to continue serving our community and nation, virtuously.
