MISSION


ONE NATION. ONE TEAM. ONE FIGHT

SCROLL DOWN

MISSION


ONE NATION. ONE TEAM. ONE FIGHT

Our mission is large scale economic development to create jobs, both working with industry and doing it ourself, that are for our fellow countrymen and women who volunteered to serve this great country. We are the interesction of military meets entrepreneurial meets economic development. We provide Mentor-Protege support to our fellow veterans. 

What does that mean? It means if we do it right we both stir the creation of new jobs for the warriors who volunteered to protect our nation, enable our veterans to build new business, and ultimately stir the economy. What could be better?

Why do we need to do this?

Our Vets (and Active Duty), compared to non-vets have:

  • Higher unemployment rates
  • Higher suicide rates and growing 
    • ~ 22 vets per day
    • ~ 22+ active duty soldiers per day
  • Higher divorce rates

Add to this our Wounded Warriors, who since 9/11 have: 

  • 250K+ traumatic brain injuries
  • 45K+ major head injuries
  • 4K+ penetrating head wounds
  • 1,600+ major amputees
    • 83% lost one or both legs 
  • 2,500+ major burns

The below sums up our sentiment and our mission.

This is heartfelt letter is from John J. Pershing who is the only American to be promoted in his own lifetime to, and was the general who led the American Expeditionary Forces to victory over Germany in World War I, 1917-18. With the war winding down and the American troops separating from Active Duty, General Pershing wrote this letter to the troops.

The words ring true to our sentiment and our mission:

G.H.Q.


AMERICAN EXPEDITIONARY FORCES

MY FELLOW SOLDIERS:

France, February 28, 1919

      Now that your service with the American Expeditionary Forces is about to terminate, I can not let you go without a personal word. At the call to arms, the patriotic young manhood of America eagerly responded and became the formidable army whose decisive victories testify to it’s efficiency and it’s valor.

     With the support of the nation firmly united to defend the cause of liberty, our army has executed the will of the people with resolute purpose. Our democ-racy has been tested, and the forces of autocracy have been defeated. To the glory of the citizen-soldier, our troops have faithfully fulfilled their trust, and in a succession of brilliant offensives have overcome the menace to our civili-zation.

      As an individual, your part in the world war has been an important one in the sum total of our achievements. Whether keeping lonely vigil in the trenches, or gallantly storming the enemy’s stronghold; whether enduring monotonous drudgery at the rear, or sustaining the fighting line at the front, each has bravely and efficiently played his part. By willing sacrifice of personal rights; by cheerful endurance of hardship and privation; by vigor, strength and in-domitable will, made effective through organization and cordial co-opera-tion, you inspired the war-worn Allies with new life and turned the tide of threatened defeat into overwhelming victory.

      With a consecrated devotion to duty and a will to conquer, you have loy-ally served your country. By your exemplary conduct a standard has been established and maintained never before attained by any army. With mind and body as clean and strong as the decisive blows you delivered against the foe, you are soon to return to the pursuits of peace. In leaving the scenes of your victories, may I ask that you carry home your high ideals and con-tinue to live as you have served—an honor to the principles for which you have fought and to the fallen comrades you leave behind.

      It is with pride in our success that I extend to you my sincere thanks for your splendid service to the army and the nation.    

Faithfully, John J. Pershing, Commander-in-Chief

GOALS


GOALS


In the Military a Capability Gap is the crux of all military acquisitions. The Gap is a technology or function you need to “acquire” hence acquisitions. The Gaps are related to “mission needs” to perform and excite a defined military mission. The Army has had great success in methodically breaking down the big picture into digestible and executable subsets of the more grandiose capability that is needed. The old eat an elephant one bite at a time. They use the phraseology of Capability Sets which are the tangible steps to closing the capability gaps on the mission’s needs. 

For Wounded Warrior Corps, we are taking a similar approach and defining our goals for the year one “set" or step at a time. The below represent what we announced at our recent Launch party (see photographs) and are hard at work executing. The [JOBS] tab will keep you informed and aware of tangible milestones within each described Set. 

2015 GOALS

  • CS-1.1  | Robust website with interactive marketing campaigns
  • CS-1.2 | Fundraisers
  • CS-1.3 | Critical Infrastructure Protection Consortium (w USC)
  • CS-1.4 | Work from home career opportunities leveraging virtual call center technology
  • CS-1.5 | Fulfillment center (integrated with call center)

THE FINAL INSPECTION


THE FINAL INSPECTION


The Soldier stood and faced God,
Which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining,
Just as brightly as his brass.

'Step forward now, Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?'

The soldier squared his shoulders and said,
'no, Lord, I guess I ain't.
Because those of us who carry guns,
Can't always be a saint.

I've had to work most Sundays,
And at times my talk was tough.
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny,
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime,
When the bills just got too steep.

And I never passed a cry for help,

Though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place,
Among the people here.
 

They never wanted me around,
Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here, Lord,
It needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand.

There was a silence all around the throne,
Where the saints had often trod.
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.

'Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burdens well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell.'

It's the Soldier, not the reporter

Who has given us the freedom of the press.

It's the Soldier, not the poet,

Who has given us the freedom of speech.

It's the Soldier, not the politicians that ensures

Our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

It's the Soldier

who salutes the flag, 

who serves beneath the flag,

and whose coffin is draped by the flag.
