We love to support local businesses so we make it our mission to get a bite to eat and/or get a drink with the other Veterans and volunteers who came out at a local eatery.

Our mission is to remove trash from our planet by empowering Veterans to clean our communities. We accomplish our mission by having Veteran operated teams organize cleanups throughout the U.S. In return, we are giving Veterans a chance to recycle their leadership skills and continue our service in a different and equally important way.
