These are on-going social gatherings occurred every other Sunday's afternoon, deploying guided conversations by our new partnering veteran organization - VETERAN RITES.
Together, we call active duty and prior service members of all generations to step into the Veterans Circle of Return, where we return to deep solidarity with one another through conversations that get to the heart of the matter. We get each other's back by listening and speaking from the heart in a way that truly honors what you’ve been through, who you really are, and where you’re going.
Using the practice of council we make sure everyone has a chance to lay down what is aching to be shared and held by the community. New beginnings, life challenges, pains from service, songs of joy, it’s all good.
And immediately afterward, you will have the opportunity to engage in a short and impactful project supporting Seward Park Audubon, all the efforts to support our lands, our feathery friends, and most of all, the next generation.
Come on down and bring that battle buddy requiring some radical kinship, even after they say they don’t need it. VeteranRites Circles of Return are places of belonging for all current and prior service members, including womxn, LGBTQ+, and minority veterans. We are in this together.

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.
