Veterans Day- Honoring All Who Served! Come out and join all five platoons as we get together for greatness at Eight Million Stories!
In the USA, Veterans Day annually falls on November 11, which is the anniversary of the signing of the armistice that ended World War I hostilities between the Allied nations and Germany in 1918.
This year, we will honor our veterans on November 17th as we help Eight Million Stories, an organization that provides comprehensive support to previously incarcerated youth. We will beautify this campus and create bright spots so that youth have a positive environment where they can thrive.
We need volunteers for the following projects:
1. Painting outside of two buildings 2. Painting inside of two buildings (consist of classrooms, restrooms, and offices) 3. Painting basketball goals (Placing nets on basketball goals and drawing the box on the goal) 4. Landscaping and mulching 5. Re-striping parking lot
Registration and breakfast will start at 8:30 a.m. so that we can kick off the event on time. Snacks and lunch will be provided. We hope to see you there!

The Mission Continues shirt
Certain host organizations, such as schools, may prohibit volunteers with certain types of criminal convictions from participating in a service project. Accordingly, The Mission Continues is requesting your consent to conduct a criminal background check in the event that your Platoon is engaging in a service project with a host organization that requires a criminal background check. By checking the box below, you authorize The Mission Continues to conduct a criminal background check.
If such a background check is required, it will be completed and used in accordance with applicable law. The Mission Continues does not automatically disqualify persons from Platoons based on criminal convictions. We want as many people as possible to have the opportunity to move forward in their lives through service, at the same time that we seek to protect the communities we serve together.
