Report From the Ground
Warrior Reunion Foundation Blog
Like everyone else, 2020 forced us to adapt and overcome. Thankfully it is not the first time our leadership team has faced such adversity. To many it may seem odd to be thankful for hardship – but combat veterans know better. We know that through the toughest conditions and in our darkest hours, our true character is revealed.
We could not be more proud of the community we have built through our reunions. Our organization is inspired by the strength of our combat veterans. Our team has watched in awe as unit members reconnect after years apart, lending hands of support and open arms for hugs to Gold Star families, while providing a venue for crucial conversations to enhance the mental, emotional and spiritual fitness of our attendees. This unique community has become the Warrior Reunion Foundation’s family.
Every day we strive to honor the service of those who have secured the freedoms we enjoy today. While we face seemingly unprecedented trials in this challenging time, our lives are immeasurably better living under the banner of freedom that our flag represents.
