 The cornerstone of our foundation is a 33’ yacht that we take our Veterans and their families out on, to relax on the water and enjoy a day in the Florida sun.


You see the stress and heartache leave their faces as they step aboard our boat and leave with a smile from ear to ear! It is the first step in our goal to support and serve our Veterans. 


The smallest gestures, make the biggest impact on our Veterans coming home from combat. We also assist Veterans transition back into civilian life. Most importantly, our goal is to prevent, and bring awareness to Veteran suicide, which in Florida, is extremely high.


Help us  welcome our Heroes back into our community with open arms. It is not enough to say Thank You, followed with a handshake or hug, although it is deeply appreciated. It is most important to show your support by getting involved in volunteering, or to donate. You might save a life!

We will be assisting with research, such as marking reefs, cataloging reef growth, identifying different species of fishes, and reef cleanup. The purpose of our partnership is twofold - we are helping Saint Lucie County in their efforts to produce long term environmental benefits, in addition to providing activities to our Veterans,  such as diving

We have a 16' trailer equipped with a computer workstation for Veterans to look up their VA benefits, or to search for work, an AC unit and a kitchenette. We bring our trailer to the several homeless camps around the Treasure Coast, to provide some relief to our homeless Veterans.
