Keeping The Promise 2009

Wednesday, May 13, 2009 07:12 | Roger Reed
Roger Reed here to report to all, that we Veterans and other interested citizens are remembering and putting into action President Lincoln's call to the Nation one month before his untimely death.
"To care for him who shall have borne the battle and for his widow and his orphan." 
This is the call to action for the California DVBE Alliance in their 17th annual DVBE Convention.
We see that now, more than ever, that promise needs to be kept!
Soon I will attend the 2009 Keeping The Promise DVBE convention to gather video resources and interview material that can be useful to Veteran organizers, policy makers and the general public that wishes to help America in "Keeping The Promise".
The conference allows Vetrepreneur to interact with Govt agencies, Prime contractors and other Veteran owned businesses for the purpose of contracting teaming and developing relationships that lead to a more prosperous future.
I will report back shortly after my return from the conference to detail what was done and share my views on what still needs too be addressed.
Due to conflicts in scheduling and a lack of funding to offset the cost of attending the KTP 2009 I was forced to cancel plans to document the event.
I was very disappointed that I can not share with you all the details and events that are a part of KTP but I will seek out video and photos of the event and point our readers to the location.

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.
