Our mission is very simple. We strive to bring as many veterans as we can, from all the different branches of the military, together in one place at one time and to experience the bond and the brotherhood or sisterhood that most of us felt when we were in uniform. To demonstrate to all that it doesn't matter if you served in peacetime or in time of conflict, we were part of a family that took care of each other and had each others backs. We wear with honor and pride the medals that were awarded us and by doing so, demonstrate to the world that as veterans, we appreciate the many freedoms that we have fought for and that many of us have died for. That when we took our oath of enlistment there wasn't an expiration date. And if the occasion should ever arise again during our lifetime, we would not hesitate to defend our country again.
