Thank you to the Grunt Style Foundation, the Mayport/Jacksonville USO, Irreverent Warriors, and so many more volunteers who made it possible to take care of our Junior Enlisted Service Members! The day before the Irreverent Warriors Jax Beach Silkies Hike, we partnered with these fine organizations to donate food, groceries, hygiene products, and clothing to hundreds of local Service Members and their families! We're honored to serve alongside all of you and support your mission statement of "Forward, with Purpose".
The 2nd Annual Irreverent Warriors Jax Beach Silkies Hike is in the books! Over 200 Veterans and 30 volunteers made this event even better than last year! We're already looking forward to next year's event. We're proud to serve alongside Irreverent Warriors and support their mission to "Bring Veterans together using humor and camaraderie to improve mental health and prevent Veteran suicide".
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
