Our program is safe, confidential and not affiliated with the VA. IF you were in the military and are looking for other people who understand what that really means, join us. This could be your first step to getting back in the game, or a time to just have fun and be active. Services range from one-on-one support to group activities.

If you are thinking about joining this group please do so because you want to be an ACTIVE member.  We understand that not everyone can make every meetup but we want active participation.  (Active membership means we would like to see your face at a meetup at least once every other month.)

We meet the first Wednesday of the month from 6-8 pm and we have a Meet & Greet for new members on the last Sunday of every month from 10- Noon. We also have several other events going on. Occasionally we will have other meetings, but if you know that this does not fit with your schedule - please consider how you will be an active member before joining the group.

If you do not participate (this could be as simple as logging into the group page and sparking discussion) for three months we will most likely remove you from the group and ask that you rejoin when you are able to actively participate.

When you join the group please be prepared to answer the following questions on your profile page. This page is only viewable to members of this group;

 What events are you interested in attending? 

What Branch of Service did you take the oath for?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
