Since 2010, OSD’s Veteran Support Ecosystem has impacted over 900,000 veterans, active military and family members through award-winning programs emphasizing Social Connectivity, Professional Development and Community Service.
Active-Military, Veterans and their Families receive relevant and relatable long term support while we create opportunities for widespread community involvement through fitness, outdoors activities, recreational therapy and familiy outings at home and abroad.
Transitioning is one of the greatest challenges faced by today’s military. We are uniquely positioned to help veterans connect with one another and with resources to ensure successful integration.
Everyone has the ability to make a substantive impact.
Together, we see the need and meet the need.
