The Sweetwater Chapter meets monthly (see the Ã¢â‚¬Å“About Our ChapterÃ¢â‚¬Â section below for details). During these meetings there is a Ã¢â‚¬Å“programÃ¢â‚¬Â period of 20-30 minutes during which a speaker makes a presentation of interest to the members. These speakers may be, for example, military personnel, representatives of organizations providing services to veterans, civil dignitaries, law enforcement officers, or simply someone able to share something thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s interesting or amusing.
The Chapter directly supports JROTC units in four area high schools. The Chapter often participates in the different veteran oriented, and other, Ã¢â‚¬Å“resourceÃ¢â‚¬Â events held at various times and places throughout the San Diego area, and regularly encourages its members to assist with the advocacy of particular issues at the federal, state or local levels.
Our community involvement, as a Chapter and individually, helps to bridge the gap between the 1% who have chosen to serve and the 99% who have not served.
