Combat to Conservation will remain a non-profit organization by design to give disabled combat veterans an opportunity to do something rewarding despite their inability to work. Many disabled veterans are unable to pursue a higher education or career opportunities because of physical and mental disabilities. By providing them with this opportunity to volunteer, they will have an alternative that society does not provide. Disabled veterans rely on limited means from the Department of Veterans Affairs. It is important for this program to provide them with not only a meaningful opportunity, but also a cost-free one.
Many disabled veterans battle Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), depression, and many other mental disorders. Many needed adjustment programs are not available to them. Combat to Conservation would provide disabled veterans with an opportunity to address the obvious environmental issues that our planet is facing, while also helping them to adjust a little easier. Volunteering outdoors would help to lift their spirits and give them a sense of new hope, while also giving them an opportunity to overcome the stigma of disability and to feel a sense of accomplishment.
