What is A Warriors Welcome?
A Warriors Welcome is a safe place to connect with other veterans to have open discussions, share experiences, problem solve, make new friends, learn from, and help each other navigate the hurdles of life after service.
Guest experts will address problems veterans are coping with. Local leaders may participate to help foster a strong peer network and facilitate conversations. All with a shared goal to build camaraderie, driven by a growing member base.
The purpose of a Warriors Welcome is to ensure that connections are forged whether you’re a veteran transitioning home or a retiree looking for a way to give back, there is a place for you at the table.
