Each service platoon’s mission is unique to the platoon and the challenges facing its community. Each mission is ongoing and organized around weekly, monthly, or quarterly events. Service platoons collaborate with local nonprofits, civic organizations and businesses to ensure community support and engagement. It’s a win-win for veterans and for the community.
