Vets 4 Vets is a movement created in 2013 by the
Semper Fidelis Society working towards uniting Veterans and Veteran Organizations in NE Florida. It’s intent is to provide a forum where Veterans and their organizations can share agendas, information,network among Veterans and Veteran Organizations and introduce the Veterans community to prominent community leaders and organizations that assist and/or provide services to veterans and their families.
Vets 4 Vets is a way of addressing veterans concerns together, creating an environment of cooperation and coordination between Veterans Organizations and bringing attention and support to establishing a solely for Veterans, run by Veterans and supported by the Veterans Community Veteran’s Resource Center/support facility in Jacksonville.
Vets 4 Vets has quarterly gatherings. They are only 2 hours on a Saturday and includes a lunch. The Gatherings are an opportunity to meet fellow Veterans from other organizations,share in some camaraderie and work toward supporting each other. It is an opportunity to for Veterans across Northeast Florida to present a united front when dealing with local Veterans issues.
“A man who is good enough to shed his blood for the country is good enough to be given a square deal afterwards.”
