Accomplishments

 
 
 

As we enter another new year, we are proud to state that we have been in the business of helping veterans for over 22 years.  We are honored to have met so many heroes.  In 2015, we settled into our new corporate home in Liberty Township Ohio.  We started with 1 small office in 1 state to 5 full service offices in multiple states.  The move has been significant in so many ways – we now have enough space to meet our needs and develop more programs for veterans, the heroes that we serve.

 

We are grateful for and humbled by the generous donations of those who are proud and supportive of this country’s military.  Because of you , we have made great strides, including helping veterans more than 21,000 times since we began our mission.
