n honor of the 75th anniversary of the invasion of Normandy (aka Operation Overlord), The Mission Continues is partnering with multiple agencies and veterans organizations across the PNW to remember this historic event.
For Pride 2019, The Mission Continues will organize a beach clean up to remember those who participated in Operation Overlord. We will comb through multiple beaches throughout the PNW, working hand in hand with those local communities and to remember and stand with our WW II and LGTBQ veterans who sacrificed so much for the future of not only the nation but of the world.

Inclement Weather Plan :
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.
