When we first started this project in March of 2019 our mission was simple… Pay it forward & give service members as well as their families the tools necessary to be successful both in their personal & professional lives. We have dedicated countless hours to researching & connecting with professionals about topics like education, home buying, & medical benefits, to give you more power. Yes our vision is ambitious, but at the highest level we want to do more than just give you helpful links or inspirational stories.
We want to bridge the gap between the military & civilian community.
Some of you deployed, leaving your family, friends & the comfort of home for extended periods of time to face unknown dangers & the harsh realties of the world we live in. Some worked 16, maybe even 20 hour shifts for days if not weeks on end, eating nothing more than SpaghettiOs, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches or popcorn (personal experience) in 120°F degree weather or perhaps well below 5°F to support a crucial mission & protect the lives of others. Perhaps you were in an accident or an attack that left you injured or worse yet took someone you loved & would have traded places with in a heartbeat.
The point we want to make is that it is both the good and the bad that has shaped each & every one of us. I am truly grateful for all that I was a part & the incredible men & women who I was privileged to serve alongside. It is the love for serving others that has set us on this path & made this project so meaningful to us. The 3 of us (Dan, Gerard & myself) want to pay it forward to not just the service members, but the spouses & children who endured & suffered alongside us every work up, training exercise, deployment…
To our new family of UNWAVERING service members, families & supporters, each & every one of you mean a great deal to us & we will do everything we can to help make a difference in your lives.
