With the continued challenges of COVID and the end of the Afghanistan War, 2021 has been a challenging year for many of our nation’s veterans. This Veterans Day comes with conflicting emotions, isolation and loneliness, the impacts of which cannot be overstated. With this in mind, Camp Southern Ground, Zac Brown Band and our supporters want to raise some noise to honor and recognize these warriors. Together, we stand by our nation’s veterans – we appreciate them, we support them, we need them.

Join us by honoring the veteran warriors in your life. Post about them on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter using the hashtag #MyWarrior and ask your friends to do the same! We’ll be resharing these as we share Stories of Impact from Camp Southern Ground Warrior alumni, as well as a special video on Veterans Day.
