Connecting the Military and Veterans' Community

The military app encompasses a range of physical and digital projects that help drive connection and improved wellbeing for the military and veterans' community. Our activations and initiatives are shaped and supported by a group of like-minded and passionate patrons.

We would like to acknowledge the creativity and vision, drive and support of our patrons, that is the force behind spreading this positive impact.
