Be a part of something bigger again...
To be honest, before I joined Veterans Alliance, I didn’t fully understand the value of being part of a Veteran organization. You may have similar reasons for not joining. You may think it isn’t relevant to you, or maybe you think you won’t be welcome. Whatever reason you may have for not getting involved, let me give you some reasons why I think you should reconsider.
Many who have served say that one thing they enjoyed was being part of something greater than them. As a non-profit organization, Veterans Alliance can give you that: in the past year alone we have assisted our own when in need and donated money and gifts to the Christmas Cheer Board, the Salvation Army toy drive, Can Praxis, and more.
At its heart, Veterans Alliance is a military network. This is a place where those who don the uniform can come together and enjoy one of the things they enjoyed most about serving people. The group provides social opportunities such as weekly peer support, spousal support, and weekly yoga.
If you aren’t sure where to start, spend some time checking out this website. What do you have to lose? See what we have to offer and how you can get involved.
