About Our Event:

Welcome Home All Veterans (WHAV) is a coalition of people like you, Veteran Organizations, and numerous businesses who care.  Together, our goal is to educate Veterans as close to the announced changes as possible and help them fill out the forms and process what is theirs for the taking.  We don’t want any man or woman left behind.

Our process has proven successful over the past few years, as people just like you helped hundreds of Veterans right on the spot.  The WHAV annual event allowed us to bring thousands of people together and provide immediate support to Veterans in our local communities.  Each event turned into a great celebration thanking Veterans for their service, but more importantly we were able to give them the precious resources they needed to survive.

In addition to having Benefit Resources available, WHAV invites businesses with Veteran specific programs, discounts and resources to staff a booth to promote their services.
