Become A Mentor For Veterans!
In the military we are taught to be of ultimate service to our country and to our fellow brothers and sisters. Getting discharged doesn’t mean we should abandon that mission. Rather, we must redefine it and utilize our military training to better serve our community.
The ‘10 Challenges to Service’ are designed to help us continue our mission to serve and protect. “How?” you might ask. We do it by being the person we want our children to become one day, a person who leads by example. The more we can learn and take the time to work on ourselves, the more value we can add to the lives of those around us. Think of these challenges as a boot camp, laying the groundwork for us to redefine our mission and take charge of our lives. We are not victims. It’s up to us to create the change we want, not Uncle Sam!
As you tackle each challenge, you will communicate with one of our Mentors about your progress and learnings. Upon completion of the 10th challenge, you may become a Mentor for The Long Walk Home if you so desire. Mentoring is an excellent opportunity not only to impact fellow Veterans, but also to reinforce what you learned from your own experience taking the challenges.
