  2. Operation Suppy Drop and Heroes Gone wild solidified their relationship by throwing a Fundraiser for two Fallen San Antonio Heroes. The event was in support of the families of fallen SAFD member Scott Deem and SAPD Officer Migual Moreno. There was a huge turn out to of Veterans and civilians that wanted to support San Antonio's First Responders. The San Antonio Chief of Police Chief McManus and the San Antonio District Attorney Nicholas Nico LaHood were present to show their support for the fallen Heroes. Officer Moreno's family were present and expressed their appreciation for the support of their Son. The SAPD officers, Veterans and Civilians present all came together and had a great time. The event featured a shrimp boil and this was a huge success. Many people commented on how good the food was. The boil was a success due to the 400 lbs of shrimp Donated by Groomers Seafood in San Antonio and the crew Of Hooligans for cooking. This is just another example of Operation Supply Drops Commitment to support our Local Communities.
  3. Tm Vincenza conducts retreat to Lake Molveno

    OSD Vicenza went on a little retreat to Lake Molveno, Italy! A total of 5 members went on a 2.5 hour drive up north into the Dolomite Mountains to find a quite town and lake with a magnificent view. The water was sky-blue and cold to knock off the summer heat. Surrounding the lake were tall, massive mountains that the clouds engulfed like it was nothing. The team found a nice shaded spot under a tree and pulled out some wine and snacks to get a feel of the area. Soon we went into the lake and watched locals and visitors do the same as the sun was right above us. After a hour of swimming, the team went back to the site and let the sun dry us off and get a little sun while sharing funny knock knock jokes and stories from work. After spending 4 hours at the lake, the team went to the city of Andalo, just 10 minutes north of the lake to eat some dinner. From eating classic Italian pizza to roasted chicken, the team enjoyed the evening view of the mountains while drinking German beer (since we were so close to the border). When the team wrapped up with full stomachs, they headed back to Vicenza to play the Destiny 2 Beta!

  5. Tm Vicenza hosts soliders to a D&D marathon

    Team Vicenza set up a grueling 12 hour Dungens & Dragons game. This is a weekly event intended to bring soldiers together for Espirt de Corps and just pure all out fun. The game had its ups and downs and plenty of laughs and close calls while battling a Dragon and gathering loot. The game night was such a hit that the group agreed to continue their adventure every Saturday from 1200 thru 2300 and hopes to expand the number of players. Many players expressed their happiness to find a place to have fun and hangout with fellow soldiers.
  6. When Team Portland heard there was a local disabled vet that needed help working on his home, they were ready to help but they knew they were going to need some reinforcements. Thankfully, they had Team Seattle just up the road and ready to assist! On July 15th and 16th, the two teams joined forces in Sandy, Oregon to help a veteran who had recently been medically retired and was in desperate need of some help finishing the remodel of his home. In the months leading up to his retirement, SFC. Koontz had over 20 different individuals and veteran support organizations offer to help him finish the work on his home, but every time the plans fell through. After serving his country through multiple deployments, becoming one of the most qualified cold weather survival instuctors in the US military, and suffering through injuries and surgeries that left him with extremely limited mobility, he couldn't find anyone to help him finish the work needed to get him, and his family, moving forward into his new life as a retired veteran. Over two days, the two teams came together for over 75 hours of combined volunteer assistance. OSD members showed up with a smile like always, and did whatever work was asked of them to help complete the mission. With mostly exterior work needed, the members spent a large majority of their time in the summer sun. To assist in accomplishing their goal, Rip It Energy Fuel also helped by donating plenty of energy drinks to help keep the team members going in the heat. Speaking on the adventure, Seattle Team Lead Chance Mcpheron said "This was an amazing experience. Not only did we have teams coming together for a united, worthy cause, but everyone put in some serious work. You're there to try and help a guy who can barely walk now because he spent a decade kicking ass for his country. Everyone there wanted to be working, they wanted to be helping. Even the little kids were constantly asking what they could do. Then we would take a break, and everyone was sitting around covered in sweat, drinking Rip It's and cracking jokes or telling stories. Moments like that, when you're still having fun even though you're sweaty, tired, and sore, are some of my fondest memories from the military. These are the kinds of experiences you don't forget." The "Rip It Fueled Remodel" was a huge success, and just another example of how our teams are ready to help in any way they can. If you would like to know more about either of our teams out in the Pacific Northwest, make sure to check out their social media for more information!

  7. The transition process can be long, difficult, and stressful. Keeping in tune with OSD's goal of helping however possible, Heroic Forces provides transition assistance that is focused on aiding each transitioning service member with exactly what they need. By keeping the seminars to less than 4 service members, HF reps are able to focus on each attendees needs and help develop a transition plan that fits their specific goals. On July 24th, Regional Director and Heroic Forces representative Chance Mcpheron met with two airmen from Joint Base Lewis-McChord to host our first Heroic Forces seminar in the greater Seattle area! With one of the airmen nearing medical retirement, Mcpheron was able to asses his situation, provide insight into what he should expect throughout the rest of his transition, and is also working hand in hand with the airmen to ensure he does everything possible to assist in a successful transition to the civilian world after more than 10 years of service. Speaking of the program, Mcpheron noted "Heroic Forces is more than just meeting up and giving some advice. Everything about our program is focused on a personal and unique experience. From the moment you make contact, our goal is to make your life easier and less stressful. We meet at a convenient time and location for the service member, then spend about an hour discussing where they're at, what their goals are after the military, and how to reach them as efficiently as possible. We don't just sit down with you and throw a ton of information at you either. Once you've attended a seminar, we stay in contact with you throughout your transition. Whether it be resume building, VA claims, or just some help settling in to a new city, we will do whatever we can to make your life easier." Now that Heroic Forces is up and running in the Seattle area, we are issuing a blanket invitation to all service members nearing the end of their military careers. Regardless of rank, branch, or time in service, if you served your country, we want to help you transition back into the civilian world when the time comes. If you're stationed anywhere in the greater Seattle area, feel free to reach out to Mcpheron any time to setup a seminar. Contact: Chance Mcpheron mcpheron.c@operationsupplydrop.org (253)820-0879
  8. Scott Morrison, Program Director of The Teams. Operation Supply Drop heard about a Warrior Support Center opening in the Valley of South Texas. Scott said " I knew I had to visit the WSC and see what support they needed, the Valley area of Texas is rural and many Veterans feel isolated there. A WSC is just the thing needed to bring Veterans together and let them bond with each other and educate them on the services available for Veterans in the state of Texas" This is what Scott found and heard: A local couple had created a group to help veterans who've been exposed to burn pits overseas is working on a new project. They call it a "Warrior Support Center". The city of Robstown has loaned Leroy and Rosie Torres an old building at 201 North 4th Street, which they have begun renovating. Opening a Warrior Support Center has been a lifetime dream for the Torres but having one in Western Nueces County is a necessity. Leroy Torres said, "In talking and traveling to Banquete, Alice and Agua Dulce, there are veterans who are forgotten and just hearing responses. They are grateful that there is something that is going to be here close than rather driving to Corpus Christi." The new center will offer job training, counseling and other resources for veterans. It's going to have a computer room, a classroom, a recreational center and just different services. The center's Executive Director Rosie Torres says they can't deliver that without the support from the community. The center will also offer a "Career Closet" stocked with professional attire for veterans who have job interviews. Word is spreading fast among veterans. Torres said, "Just yesterday, we had two (veterans) stop by. They stopped by and they were really excited to see something. Of course, this is a small town and they see movement and what's going on and there's cleaning. So, they were excited for the veteran community." I am glad to report that through our sponsors and Donors we were able to furnish the recreation room with video game systems for the Veterans and their families to enjoy. Scott reports, " Another good news story on multiple organizations coming together with the common mission of supporting Veterans"
  9. Team Philadelphia Feeds Veterans on 4th of July

    Team Philadelphia feed 80 Veterans at the Philadelphia Veterans Comfort House. The house gives homeless veterans a chance to start over and become productive members of society. Utilizing military tools, we seek to restore self-confidence in their pursuit of the civilian goals of employment and securing permanent housing. Our program, however, is so much more. Emphasizing the camaraderie that is ever-present among the veteran population, we have established the home base and family support structure that so many of the veterans we serve, yearn for. Our mission is to be the foundation on which our veterans can begin to rebuild and maintain a support for their futures ahead. They host our past veterans throughout the year for everything from a meal or just social gathering to our hosted events. We are proud of what we do here and we encourage you to join us in helping those who have served America to rewrite their futures. Team led Addam Carothers summed up the event this way," It was a great day to get out and give back, Operation Supply Drop, Team Philadelphia was happy to feed these Veterans on independence day and spend time listening to their stories. It is truly awesome to give back to those fellow Veterans that gave so much to our freedom"
  10. Team Baltimore Conducts Gexcon Supply Drop

    Members of Team Baltimore attended Gexcon 2017. Prior to Gexcon they conducted a Supply Drop at Naval Support Facility Dahlgren Liberty Center. The Liberty Center supports over a thousand Sailors and Family members each year. The Liberty Center is a terrific place for single military members to relax and enjoy lots of fun activities. The Center is equipped with a big screen TV, video gaming systems, pool tables, game tables, computers with Internet service, Wi-Fi, fax machine, a kitchenette and movies. The Liberty Center offers activities such as cookouts, video game tournaments and trips to sporting events and area attractions. Liberty is an exciting program that enhances the quality of life and well being of service members stationed at NSF Dahlgren, Liberty promotes team building, camaraderie and offers structured activities, tournaments and tours in alcohol-free environment. Mrs Stacey Scarabello , Marketing & Commercial Sponsorship, Naval Support Facility (NSF) Dahlgren Thanked OSD by saying " I would like to again say thank you to Operation Supply Drop and The Teams that make events like ours possible. The Naval Support Facility (NSF) Dahlgren Liberty Center is thrilled with its new gaming systems, video games, board games and other supplies that were donated. Although it was a short event, Operation Supply Drop has provided active duty members at NSF Dahlgren with long-term fun! It was truly a pleasure working with you throughout this process. "
  11. BY THE NUMBERS: What did it take to make today's community service project happen? A Saturday, one lot, twelve volunteers from three groups, a few shovels, a lot of motivation, a lot of water, and a lot more Mission BBQ. Before OSD, Team Rubicon, and Habitat for Humanity volunteers showed up today this was just a vacant lot where a house once stood. Thanks to these hard workers and a little vision, this space will one day be a park for members of the local community to enjoy.
  12. Team Phoenix takes Veterans to Dbacks Game

    This game holds a special place in my heart and reminded me why we do what we do. Even if it's a small impact, it can make a huge impact on someone else. Mike, Al & David are three veterans from La Loma Health and Rehab center in Phoenix and they were selected to attend the Diamondbacks vs the Brewers game! All three of these men have served in the military in their young years and it was obvious the love they had for baseball. Unfortunately, all three of these men have been diagnosed with dementia and while all of their cases vary with severity, they all suffer from the brain disease. The game was wonderful, we had great seats, the Diamondbacks won, and the veterans enjoyed themselves. Ione, one of the volunteers from La Loma Health and Rehab asked Al who he was going for and he responded with "I'm not sure, I haven't give the Brewers a fair chance yet!" I thought it was hilarious because he was wear a Diamondbacks hat! But what really tugged on my heart strings was the voicemail I received from Ione just two short days after the game. She called to tell me that one of the guys that attended the game could not stop talking about it. He told his daughter who went to visit him at the home all about the game and how much fun he had. But what really got me was that this specific man has one of the more serious cases of dementia and never leaves the home unless it is for a doctors appointment. Based off of what I have been told by Ione is that "it's absolutely incredible to see him still talking about the baseball game, he has become more sociable, and he even remembers the grand slam!" *cue the water works* Since the baseball game, David left the nursing home for the first time in six years, with no doctors appointment scheduled, to just enjoy some time with his daughter. There isn't much more you could ask for as a volunteer when you hear feedback like this. I am fortunate enough to attend several baseball games, but this one with be forever embedded in my heart. The impact that this baseball game, that most of us take advantage of, made a huge impact on this man and THAT is why we do what we do.

  15. For the third time this year, Team Seattle and Virtual Sports Northwest hosted the Warrior Transition Battalion's Adaptive Sports Program for an evening of Virtual Reality based therapy. A program that has quickly caught traction, the Seattle RESPAWN effort brings injured soldiers from the Ft. Lewis Warrior Transition Battalion to Virtual Sports in Tukwila, WA for a fun evening of gaming, that also provides physical activities that many of the soldiers would not be able to enjoy through real life experience. Including soldiers that have physical limitations, head injuries, and vision impairments, Team Seattle members and Virtual Sports employees have provided a breath of different games that allow any soldier attending the ability to have some fun while also getting a quality workout in the process. Speaking on the program, Team Leader Chance Mcpheron noted "We anticipated this was going to be a success going in. Before we ever planned the first event with Virtual Sports we researched the history of Virtual Reality in therapy and found countless success stories. The guys over at Virtual Sports know VR in and out, we did our part by educating ourselves on the therapy potential, and with the help of the Adaptive Sports therapists, we've been able to develop a program that has tremendous potential in supporting the soldiers that have sacrificed their well being for our country. As long as the WTB and their therapists feel we are providing a positive experience for soldiers, we will continue to grow and expand our efforts." The Seattle team isn't content with just bringing a small group of soldiers up to Virtual Sports either. "Virtual Sports has been overwhelmingly supportive in all of our efforts. They provide a great venue for soldiers to get away from base and enjoy themselves in a very unique way, but we are currently working to bring the program to the unit as well. Even with the generosity from Virtual Sports, we can only realistically support a dozen or so soldiers every month. We want to maximize our potential and begin bringing VR systems to the WTB on a much more regular basis. Not only would it eliminate travel for the unit, it would give us an opportunity to work hand in hand with every Adaptive Sports therapist and create a program detailed towards every soldier we support." The Seattle team is going strong and ambitious as ever. If you would like to be involved with the team's efforts, make sure to check out their Facebook group and Twitter for more information.
  16. Tm Baltimore at AwesomeCon

    Tm Baltimore came out in full force for DC's annual AwesomeCon, 6 members of our team manned a complimentary booth given to us by T3 Expo. We met with some great people and made some amazing contacts. We also filled out newsletter sign up with 100+ new e-mails to added to the OSD family. Tm Baltimore also got to meet some great celebrities including Phil Lamar, Jason David Frank, and John Barrowman! We even met up with some familiar faces including the GexCon crew and OSD'sTeam Fayetteville, NC. We also had the pleasure of meeting some veterans who were the recipients of Supply Drops during their time in the service. Overall the convention was a huge success and I'm looking forward to many of the attendees joining the OSD family.
  17. OSD + 4Wheelers4Vets = good times

    Operation Supply Drop supported 4wheelers4vets , a Veterans' Trail Run annual event, organized for the first time October 2016, matching Canadian Veterans with 4-Wheel Drive enthusiasts, for an exhilarating weekend on the trails. One of team London veteran member ( Steinnarr ) attended the event and told us that the donation of water was greatly appreciated and keep all Veterans stayed hydrated during the event. Attached are some photos from the event including some jeeps getting a nice new OSD stickers on them.
  18. Team Seattle is full of members that love to get out and enjoy the beauty that the Pacific Northwest provides. To celebrate the coming of warm weather and blue skies, the team decended on Clark's Creek Park in Puyallup, WA for a day of kickball, football, doggos, and hot dogs. Team members brought their families, their pets, and their competitive spirit for a day of fun at the beautiful park. Kickball was a great opportunity for parents, and their children, to get in on the action and leave their mark on the field. After lunch though, the kids played on the playground while the adults faced off in a fast paced game of football. The score was high, the competition was tough, and the winning team was the last one to score before everyone was exhausted. The perfect formula for a fun game of pickup football. Overall, the Team Seattle Summer Kickoff was a great success. Nearly 10 new members attended from the local Joint Base Lewis-McChord, and everyone attending had a great time. The team hopes to host more park events in the near future, so if you're in the Seattle area keep an eye out on the calendar, along with their team Facebook Group and Twitter for upcoming events!!
  19. Team Phoenix takes Veterans to Dbacks Game

    What a nice afternoon at the ballpark with some great people! It was such an honor to be able to represent Operation Supply Drop and take 4 of our amazing veterans to enjoy some baseball. I'm so blessed to be apart of something that does so much good. Go DBacks!
  20. Tm London supports 4wheelers4vets

    Operation Supply Drop supported 4wheelers4vets , a Veterans' Trail Run annual event, organized for the first time October 2016, matching Canadian Veterans with 4-Wheel Drive enthusiasts, for an exhilarating weekend on the trails. 3 Team members of Team London donated a Beatles photo from Adam at Art East. two massages from Nicole MacMullin at Active Wellness Massage Therapy Clinic and over 800 bottles of water, Gaming Headset, Keyboard, Movie Passes, and a Camping First Aid Kit.

The lead coordinator told Team London " Thanks to you we were able to look out for the safety of our participants and enhance the prizing for our event"
  21. On June 3rd, Team Gainesville joined several veteran owned businesses and organizations to support the VFW Post 2811's "Welcome Home Veterans" event. This event gave the community the opportunity to thank veterans and learn more about the different organizations in the area. Team Gainesville represented OSD by giving free games and coffee to veterans and their families. They also spent time letting others know about how they impact veterans and the work they do in the community. They also donated a brand new Keurig coffee maker and several boxes of Starbucks coffee to the VFW Post 2811.
  22. OSD at PHX Comic-Con

    Over Memorial day weekend the Phoenix Comicon invaded the convention center and flooded the hotels and streets of downtown phoenix. Phoenix Comicon is the 3rd biggest in the USA, with a record breaking 106,096 attending in 2016.

Operation Supply Drop was invited to join in on the fun at Phoenix Comicon by Square Egg Entertainment. Thank you Square Egg and Kelli A. for everything, it was the best time we have every had at an event! Setting up the booth was really cool as it is the first time Team PHX has been to someplace this big. Huge 3 floor 3 building convention center, a marshalling yard, some pallet service from the loading dock, driving into building for load out, are all new to us. Team PHX has come a long way from a table outside Gameworks 2 years ago to this. Over the weekend we had the chance to talk with hundreds of people about Operation Supply Drop and its mission. Making new friends and networking is a big part of these events. We saw many great cosplays from Monty Python to Mary Poppins Yall! We saw OSD team members, Active Duty, Veterans, new and old to OSD during the event. OSD team phx members identified our active duty and Veterans on one day passes and made sure to hook them up with another days pass to PHX Comic-con!! On the final day of the event, Sunday, we drew the giveaway winners ticket to a crowded booth of waiting folks. After drawing 15 winners with only 2 tickets left this little guy won the prop Bazooka! The runners up one a Batman custom artwork, comics, and consoles. Everyone that was at the table was giving something. As the event drew to a close, OSD team phx reflected on the many connections and friends we made at this event.

Thanks again for checking out another Team phx event, we look forward to sharing our next experience with all of you! if you would like to help Operation Supply Drop and its Teams please check out the Link for more info.
  23. On 12 May, Operation Supply Drop Team Austin and Team San Antonio joined with American Legion Riders 245, American Legion Post 83, Kindred Hospice, and Grace Church in distributing clothing, shoes, blankets and other items to the homeless at Haven for Hope. All organization conducted drives for the items and together distributed them to more than 250 Homeless Veterans and Civilians. This is the Second time these organizations have conducted this event and it was by far the best effort. Operation Supply Drop firmly believes this was due to the collaboration from all Organizations involved. American Legion Post 83 conducted a blanket drive that yielded over 40 Blankets. The Legion described the partnership with Operation Supply Drop like this,” American Legion Post 83 was excited to have been partnered with Operation Supply Drop, we could have not found a better organization to help out with during their events. This blanket drive was a statement to all the things that both the American Legion and Operation Supply Drop believe in and that is no veteran should be left behind.” American Legion Riders 245 have been doing awesome events for a long time. Operation Supply Drop Team Austin, San Antonio and Seguin have partnered with them for numerous events to include, Feeding the Homeless Christmas dinner with presents, Feeding Veterans for Easter, Events at SS Memorial, and Haven For Hope support. David Ortiz from Team San Antonio summed it up like this “This was an amazing opportunity to participate in a joint effort with my fellow Veteran brothers and sisters by supporting my local community. It gave me another perspective of selfless service for my community by putting our 'boots on ground' in the efforts to directly impact the lives of those who are in need. This gave me another avenue for me to continue to serve but with firsthand interaction with my local populace."
  24. After the overwhelming success of their first Respawn VR event, OSD Seattle wanted to provide another event as quickly as possible for the soldiers of the Warrior Transition Battalion's Adaptive Sports Program. Thankfully, the wonderful people at Virtual Sports Northwest and Grab Games were happy to help. With Grab Games providing copies of their popular VR title Knockout League and Virtual Sports NW reserving all 12 of their VR booths for 16 soldiers from the WTB, Team Seattle was able to host their second Respawn VR event on May 8th. Longbow provides a great introduction to VR, but the Adaptive Sports Therapists wanted to begin fielding other sports that would specifically benefit soldiers rehabbing at the WTB. Boxing was at the top of that list, and Grab Games was generous enough to donate copies of their popular boxing game Knockout League for the event. Providing a fun, user-friendly, and challenging experience, Knockout League was the perfect step forward. Even soldiers with limited mobility were able to participate and hold their own against Tri Tip, a popular opponent from the game. Knockout League also served as a perfect example of how effective VR can be in regards to physical therapy. Even the Team Seattle members who tried a round or two walked out of the booth with their heart rates elevated. Speaking of the event, Team Leader Chance Mcpheron noted "We learned with the first event that a lot of unique injuries and disabilities can still participate in activities through VR. Now we're just trying to take that deeper, and find out how far we can stretch our perceived limitations. In two events we've had soldiers come in with serious injuries, extremely limited mobility, and very unique limitations including vision issues and vertigo. No matter the injury or disability, we've been able to adjust the experience to suit each soldier's needs and still provide them with a fun experience that benefits them in a physical therapy sense as well." The Team doesn't just serve as the host for these events. Team Seattle has multiple members well versed in VR, and they take time with each soldier to discuss their injuries/disabilities and how it effects their VR experience. The Team then takes input from the Adaptive Sports Therapists and aims to provide games that will be most beneficial in their rehab efforts. With a third event already in the works, Respawn VR is quickly becoming one of Team Seattle's hallmark events. "We do a lot of different activities out here in the NW. It's always a rewarding experience, especially when we work with the WTB, but this is something truly unique. Seeing soldiers with canes smiling as they walk back to the booths so they can fit in one more round is something special. We're able to bring these soldiers out of the hospital, out of the therapist's office, and give them a round or two of physical therapy that they enjoy and look forward to doing again. It's an honor and privilege to help make these happen." -Seattle Team Leader Devin Givens
  25. OSD send Veterans to Austin 360 Amphitheater

    On 9 May 2017 Operation Supply Drop Teamed up with Austin 360 Amphitheater to send 3 Veterans and a Spouse to the enjoy the music of King of Leon. The Veteran music lovers enjoyed the best seats in the house, up-close VIP parking, a dedicated VIP entrance, and access to the amphitheater’s super chic Crown Royal VIP Lounge during the concert. Letter from the Group follow: "First of all, I would like to thank Operation Supply Drop and The Austin Amphitheater for giving me this opportunity to hand pick three veterans to attend the Kings of Leon concert. We had an amazing time, it also gave our veterans a chance to engage in a community event. The concert was absolutely amazing, between the dancing and singing and the great view of the crowd and stage we were just having a great time. I am so grateful that I got to spend time with our veterans and enjoy their sense of humor, which at times seemed a tad bit on the “fan girl” side, especially when their favorite songs were played. Again, I can't thank you enough, you have created a bond between three veterans and a spouse that will forever be engraved in our hearts. Thank you all for your hard work!" Gracie Renfro " The Spouse"
  26. If the Ft. Lewis Warrior Transition Battalion is having an event, you're going to find some OSD Seattle Team Members on site. Add good food and warm weather, and you better believe they will be out in force! For the second year in a row, OSD Seattle supported the WTB Spring Cookoff, providing snacks, games, prizes, and a few taste testers as well. With multiple soldiers working in teams to create the best beef, pork, and chicken dishes, the spring cookoff is a great opportunity for Team Seattle members to support the unit, while also enjoying a stress free environment, along with some great food. With the teams coming together and creating dishes popular across the globe, the competition was tough, but there were smiles all around. Along with helping provide snacks for attendees, team members also hosted a booth with games available to win raffle tickets for a litany of prizes. Always ensuring that every attendee has a chance at leaving with something cool, the team made sure that the cookoff teams weren't the only winners that day. Members were also given the opportunity to meet with other veteran and military support organizations, creating new relationships that should result in some great new opportunities to support the soldiers of WTB, along with the local veterans from the team. Overall, it was another great event with the Warrior Transition Battalion. The team had a great time, met the new command staff, and there are already plans to support two more unit events over the summer.
  27. Tm Fayetteville conduct Heroic Forces Event

    Our mission is to to support active-duty, Veterans and their families across our entire organization with any needs they may have. If we don't have the program, we will connect them with a group that does. O n April 22nd, 2017 Team Fayetteville put on another Heroic Forces workshop focused on helping active-duty, Veterans and their spouses with local networking, job placement and resume assistance. This month, we had Jennifer Goodman come out. She has been part of the TAP program and now fills her days supporting Veterans and spouses looking to find work around the country. Having her as a guest this week was an absolutely pleasure and we are positive she will be at other events this year. During this event we were focused on support a military service member and her spouse. The spouse is an IT professional that is looking to get his resume fixed up and then find part time work so he can focus on his three kids that he raises while his wife is at the work inside the Army. The event occurred at Starbucks in Fayetteville, NC and we had a total of five people there supporting the event. We spent the majority of the event talking about the importance of his resume and how it will be important for finding a part time job. There was also plenty of discuss about LinkedIn and how the service helps network with other like minded IT professionals in the area. The next two weeks, Jennifer will be focused on helping Chris get his resume and LinkedIn together. From there, we will start to connect him with our network and let his dedication and attitude shine to future employers. Another great month of helping through the Heroic Forces program in NC. In the end, we may have one person show up or four, but the goal remains the same. Support those that do so much for us every single day. In this case, we thank Chris for supporting his family so his wife can serve us inside of the military. We will devote the needed resources to make him successful.
