Core Values

Our Core Values

#1.  Diversity and inclusion.  This group is for all veterans.  All branches (Army, Navy, Marines, Coast Guard) and all ranks, male and female, all ethnicities, all races, all religions.

#2. Veterans dealing with the past are looking for peace; sometimes in the wrong places. A definition in Wikipedia states “Inner peace (or peace of mind) refers to a state of being mentally and spiritually at peace with enough knowledge and understanding to keep oneself strong in the face of stress.  Being ‘at peace’ is considered by many to be healthy and the opposite of being stressed or anxious.”

#3. Assurance.  Congressman Brian Mast promotes an Oath of Exit, which he wrote while working with those who have experience PTSD first hand.  The text of the Oath as written states the following

“I,__________, recognizing that my oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic, has involved me and my fellow members in experiences that few persons, other than our peers, can understand…therefore I do solemnly swear (or affirm) to continue to be the keeper of my brothers and sisters in arms and protector of the United States and the Constitution and to preserve the values I have learned to maintain my body and my mind and to not bring harm to myself without speaking to my fellow veterans first.  I take this oath freely and without purpose of evasion, so help me God.”
