We’re a community of military Veterans, family members and supporters who share a common passion for helping those who have served in our military. We provide opportunities for Veterans to meet, network, learn and build meaningful relationships with one another to help take control of their transition throughout life.

Virtual Ruck March
Every Memorial Day weekend, veterans, family members, and supporters from all over the United States come together to walk 20 miles to honor and remember the service members we lost at home and on the battlefield. Our 20-mile hike represents the 20 veterans we lose every single day to suicide.
This year we are hosting our event Virtually! Instead of one day, you will have the entire weekend to complete your 20 miles. You can walk, run, jog, bike or skip starting on Friday and ending on Monday.
"Our Mission is to Empower Military Veterans to take Control of their Transition Throughout Life.”
Empowerment is based on the idea that giving Veterans the resources, opportunities, purpose, and motivation they need to become more productive in their communities.
We define empower as sharing information and building meaningful relationships to help take control of one’s transition throughout life and their overall well-being.
The concept of empower consists of three core components – Camaraderie, Employment and Education.
SOCIAL SUPPORT SYSTEM
We strive to help maintain the physical, mental, and emotional well-being of Veterans.
Creating pipelines into careers by helping mitigate hiring barriers Veterans face.
EDUCATIONAL PEER SUPPORT
We use a unique Peer-to-Peer and group mentorship approach.
