To provide military veterans with the resources, support, and advocacy needed to succeed in higher education and following graduation.

 
What We Do

SUPPORT OUR STUDENTS

Provide an organization in which student Veterans and Military Affiliates can feel welcome and receive the help that is needed to assist with transitioning to and becoming a more successful student. We have one another’s backs.

CAMMARDERIE AND FUN

As a social student club, we create opportunities for support through fellowship(s.)  Just like when we were/are on the job, we all realize the benefits of letting off some steam.

CONNECTING THE DOTS

Raise awareness and provide information about programs which are available to help our veterans. 

TELL OUR STORY

Raise public awareness of Veterans’ & Military Affiliates’ experiences and Veterans' programs.  Make sure that our services continue to improve, and don’t lose sight of their charge.

DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE SUPPORT

Through an ongoing and enduring culture of service, create and sustain efforts to assist Veterans and Military Affiliates and veterans’ programs. Community service, fundraising, and helping the downtrodden is how we roll.
