The Dept. of Defense own studies reflect that at over 20% of returning troops will suffer from P.T.S.D., Homelessness or poverty.  Your mission is to encourage and educate veterans on what their potential entitlements may be and to apply for those benefits. You wont be alone and the wilderness is vast.

AWARD WINNERS

Determining Winners

The Outreaches, Projects, Individuals and non-Veterans Award winners will be determined by a vote of the veteran / military community. Non-Veterans will be graded harder and will be based on impact in community. Each person will get to vote once per category from January to the end of February of that year. The category that has the most votes wins that year’s award.

We acknowledge the large, vibrant community of many well-deserving individuals. Therefore, to ensure diversity of award winners, we have decided that nominees are not eligible in any category they have already won in the previous 3 years. Nominees can also only win one category per year. There are certainly many deserving of multiple awards, however we would like to acknowledge others also worthy of recognition.
