    When I was an only child, my parents taught me card games, checkers, chess, and reading at an early age. Mom didn’t work but volunteered at my preschool. She made me familiar with the library. Dad was a veteran who personified order and discipline. One of the earliest things I remember was being told I couldn’t wear my favorite dress everyday. Shortly after that, I was three years old. According to my parents, they asked me if I wanted a brother or sister. They claimed I consented. Of course, I don’t recall that! As my baby sister grew, I learned the art of negotiation. That meant that she got what she wanted while I suffered and built character. In just a few years, I was the oldest of three. My life became one of setting examples, protecting.others, and being responsible. Then one of my aunts, an executive assistant, started handing down her professional wardrobe to me. I fell in love with business attire. By 14, I was the oldest of four. That came with plenty of adult responsibilities and none of the benefits. However, I had my own room--my sanctuary, alternate dimension, creativity studio, and other world. Reading and writing were steady hobbies. Pen, paper, and I still share a close bond that makes my PC jealous. My high school major was business. I wanted to start a business to accompany my growing collection of designer separates for the office. In college, I had the same major. Additionally, I became a third generation military member and a second generation Navy enlistee. And yes, I continued to read, write, and create.

A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
