Our plan is to create a reliable digital platform for veterans to connect. Those who have something to offer (havers) will be linked with those who have a requirement (needers). All of us are both havers and needers.
In a crowded area this project has several unique characteristics:
This is a not for profit subscription service not a charity. It is designed to cultivate the bond that exists between all veterans, and to convert the hundreds of informal connections that are made between us into a powerful digital network.
Altogether, the Executive Board has over 200 years of military experience between us.
And, we want to keep adding to that...

Is to provide a safe place where we can all play a part in improving the lives of all who have left the Services – including your own.
