    Aloha Everyone, the reason I use aloha is because it is such a great word. It says so much but is so small. I always wish everyone aloha.

    I have been working on gaining insight into all the veteran's benefits I am entitled to and I met Donald Stukes. He introduced me to a dedicated, kind, Marine veteran, Al Renteria , who feels strongly about his community, but most importantly, the veterans in the community. His focus is making sure people are not homeless and he said, if a veteran registered for their Department of Veterans Affairs ID card, they would not be homeless because they can be informed of their benefits and this person was worth $10,000 to his or her community because veterans represent economic viability. He not only developed a place for veterans to come to obtain assistance, The Southwest Veterans Business Resource Center, he also developed a 14 step program which provides all of us a path of success if we choose to become "learners". To be able to take advantage of this learner program, a person has to be an honorably discharged veteran with a DD 214 and complete the centers online registration. Once you complete the registration, you can come to the center and attend an orientation. I have attended many orientations but this is the first orientation which I can truly say changed my outlook on life. We were informed about what it took to become a learner and the commitment it required. He mentioned how important it is to understand the concepts of commitment, credibility, develop and promote a brand and have the willingness to compose positive thoughts. He talked at length about strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) and explained how they can be used to move forward in life. We reviewed the 14 step learner program and agreed to accept the mission statement. We talked about the 4-9 options of life, the Physical, Intellectual and Emotional (P.I.E) aspect of our being, the Science of the hunch, the thre pillars of e-commerce, the analogy of the tile and the carpet and the domain of the brain. To ensure we were committed, we were asked to sign the Articles of Agreements in front of several witnesses and this is the document you see on the landing page of my blog. I can surely say I am committed to completing the 14 step learner program and I am ready to help my community by informing them of how important it is for everyone to understand how important our veterans are to the community and help them help the community by making sure they register with the center so they can be sure to take advantage of all the benefits they have earned. One requirement of being a learner is to do all I can to have individuals participate in my blog so I can continue to update them on my progress. I appreciate the opportunity to serve my community by helping them help the community to be all it can be. Please respond to my blog as often as you like, I will be monitoring it every day.

DOD Welcome home-small.jpg A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.
