The connection to helping others through service doesn’t necessarily end when your tour does. For veterans who have heard and continued the call of serving the community, Combined Arms is a connection point to volunteer opportunities and nonprofits in need of assistance. We partner with the best and brightest organizations dedicated to rallying vets around the common good.
I find volunteering meaningful because I am still helping out my community and country. [Harvey relief] was my first service project and I felt like I was back in the military. Everybody was working together to get the job [done], and to see the finished project was awesome. I had found what I had been missing since I separated from the military.
Volunteering is my way of serving those who have sacrificed for our country. Knowing we have made a small difference in each veteran’s life who we help is priceless. Veterans become part of our Paws for Heroes family. We visit them on holidays and their birthdays to let them know we are here for them if they need us and we care about them.
I volunteer to pass it forward, to feel the same purpose and pride as I did when I was in [the service]. The civilian transition can be difficult for many and I'm passionate about helping make it as smooth as possible.
