Anyone of all ages who has served in the United States military, to include National Guard, Reserve and Coast Guard are welcome to join us.
This is a group designed to bring together veterans to socialize, make friends of similar interests and backgrounds, introduce new interests, share stories, help each other out if the need arises, enjoy time together and serve our communities together when possible even in small ways. The hope is to bring veterans together to build lifetime friendships and support networks. This is open to veterans all over the state of Indiana but with a logistical focus on Central Indiana.
Yes, we have the VFW, American Legion and other organizations, and they are greatly appreciated. However, this meetup is focused more on activities most veterans enjoy: shooting, fishing and about any outdoor activity; game nights, tournaments and cook outs with families mixed with social gatherings such as meeting at restaurants, concerts in the park, movie theaters, bowling alleys, etc. Veterans, let's start connecting! We will also most likely work with other Meet-up groups to take advantage of their opportunities and all the opportunities our communities offer.
One of the benefits of belonging to this group could be to provide each other with updates on benefits they may be entitled to and to make our voices heard by our elected representatives. However this not a political affiliation and opinion on any issue will vary so let us not focus on political realities please. Lets take a interest in our communities and make a difference when we can and especially be there for each other.
