STORM & SEVERE WEATHER REACTION FORCE

We are presently working with community partners to establish and stock a bunker of emergency supplies and recovery equipment to help our veteran community immediately following a hurricane or during extreme temperature conditions.  ​As part of this operation, Indian River County veterans, especially elder and medically/physically in need, can request assistance with shutter placement and/or removal during a hurricane event in our area.

LENDING A HAND

In keeping with our mission purpose, we also strive to be of assistance to our fellow veterans' groups, the Veterans Council and other community organizations in Indian River County. We will make our best effort to serve with able bodies and hands when requested for set-up, break down, staffing of or ceremony at charitable events in our community.
