WHAT IS A PLATOON? The Mission Continues introduced a new way for veterans to continue serving at home – the platoon. A platoon is a team of veteran and non-veteran volunteers that mobilizes together to solve a specific challenge . United by the common bond of service, platoons offer veterans the opportunity to make an impact, and connect with others through regular social and networking events. It’s an opportunity to serve alongside a motivated team and tackle a tough and meaningful mission. It’s an opportunity to make a difference.
JOIN A SERVICE with us PLATOON -How we work each platoon’s mission is unique to the platoon and the challenges facing its challenges. Each mission is ongoing and organized by the Platoon Leader. If you have a passion for service, then you are eligible to join a platoon. Platoons welcome veterans and non-veteran members. As a platoon member, you might spend a Saturday afternoon building houses. You could be out on the streets at midnight with your team, helping homeless veterans find shelter. You might spend the weekend camping at a team retreat. You will have opportunities to take on leadership positions and learn new skills. The best way to find out what being a platoon member is like is to sign up and try it out. You are free to come to as many events as you want. There isn’t a contract or a paycheck, just the opportunity to meet other veterans and serve your community. GET INVOLVED
