Big Brothers in Arms


I was thinking about the VVA’s founding principal of ,Never again will one generation of veterans abandon another.”  Recently, there has been some debate on this principal.  I do not plan on entering into the debate with this post.  Instead, I would like to bring your attention to a group that I found browsing the Internet that is doing something to help out our next generation of Veterans.

“The Big Brothers-In-Arms Project” pairs up older Veterans (Vietnam-Era and up) with younger Soldiers returning from deployment and/or recently discharged. Our purpose is to give our Sailors, Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, etc.  someone to “talk it out” with, someone to “hang” with, someone who understands what he’s been through. We provide a non-judgemental but sympathetic ear to help ease re-entry into “the world.”

Big Brothers-In-Arms volunteers are Veterans from all branches of the military, and we have them in every state.  Please click the image above or below and take a look at “The Big Brothers-In-Arms Project”.
