Our local community plays a vital role in fostering a sense of belonging, support, and cooperation. It is within the local community that people form connections, build relationships, and find a new identity and purpose. The community provides a place for us to come together to address common challenges, celebrate achievements, and support one another in times of need. Through nurturing and engaging with the local community, we create a strong and resilient society that thrives on collaboration, solidarity, and a shared vision for a better future. From volunteering at local events to partnering with other veteran organizations, vets provide leadership skills, determination, and the ability to set and achieve objectives that can quickly effect change.

Global outreach allows us to expand our perspective beyond local boundaries and recognize the challenges and opportunities that we collectively face. International service can foster cross-cultural understanding, promote empathy, and build bridges of cooperation and collaboration between communities. It enables the sharing of knowledge, best practices, and resources, leading to innovative solutions on a local and larger scale. As veterans, we’re uniquely equipped to handle the challenges of working in distant places, limited resources, and cultural differences.
Our current global partner is Water With Blessings, which equips women in poor/developing countries with the knowledge and tools to provide clean water for their family and community.
