Fort Worth Platoon, we have received the call to action on this year's Veteran Day!
Come and join us as all of our North Texas Platoons come together with Wounded Warrior Project to renovate and revamp the Vet Lounge and Assistance Center at UTA! Extreme Makeover Style! The Veteran Lounge and Assistance Center helps military connected students with a wide range of educational needs whether that is in the beginning stages by showing them to how to apply to college with UTA, how to utilize their GI Bill benefits, or how to successfully navigate a college lifestyle and become successful and prepared for a career outside of the service. Not to mention, the Lounge and Center provide a safe space for the student veterans a place to study, vent, and seek comradery with fellow students.
With our help, UTA can continue to provide outstanding services in both locations to their large military connected student population. We'll be breaking up into teams to get the work done below: 1. Paint all walls 2. Install new cabinets 3. Replace carpet with new flooring 4. Install new counter tops, faucet and sink 5. Assemble new office chairs 6. Install new Fridge, Ice Maker & microwave 7. Plant new shrubs, bulbs and perennial plants for curbside appeal
Let's do this! And afterwards, we will celebrate with a barbecue lunch.

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.
