BIG BROTHERS IN ARMS MISSION STATEMENT:
As Brothers-In-Arms we believe that all American servicemen and women who took the oath and completed their duty honorably are “brothers,” regardless of the eras or locations of service. We believe that it is the duty of older veterans to give the benefit of our experiences to any younger counterpart who asks. We give of ourselves unconditionally and freely, with no expectation of reward and without judgment, for the sake of our brothers-in-arms.
The Big Brothers-In-Arms Project pairs up older veterans (Vietnam-Era and up) with younger soldiers returning from deployment and/or recently discharged. Our purpose is to give our soldiers (sailors, Marines, Airmen, etc.) someone to "talk it out" with, someone to "hang" with, someone who understands what he's been through. We provide a non-judgemental but sympathetic ear to help ease re-entry into "the world."
Big Brothers-In-Arms volunteers are veterans from all branches of the military, and we have them in every state.
