Who Are We?

United Warrior Services began in 2016 as a group of Veterans raising money for local therapy Programs to honor our brother that took his own life in 2015.

We had no idea what we were doing would become something more.

Later, as we lost more and more friends and family to suicide, what began as a group of friends working together to make a small difference, became the motivating force behind everything UWS has done to date.

Originally, 3 Veterans and friends came together to form UWS. We could not stand idly by while every day more and more of our family were lost. Taking action has not been easy, but luckily we have found support both from the original fundraising group, other Veterans, and the community at large.

Our approach is to get Veterans out of their current environment and into nature. We take Veterans out into the wilderness away from Cell Signal, daily distractions, and stressors. This places them in an environment that fosters openness and brings an element of informal counseling, guided by Crisis Counselors to improve Veteran Mental States.

We are all Volunteers and do this in our free time. No one at UWS takes a paycheck or any kind of compensation.

We do this because we care.

What can you do to get involved?

UWS is an all Volunteer organization, no one takes a pay check, and everyone is dedicated to our mission.

We specialize in assisting our brothers and sisters in the veteran community that need a little “pick me up”, through events and counselling.

This approach allows prior service individuals to find that “something they lost” after they transition out of the military, helping provide a support structure where those that are in need of assistance can talk to like minded individuals about their problems, without judgment.

Currently the best way to get involved is to contact us directly, take a look at our Facebook Page, or fill out the volunteer signup form . Many hands makes the work light.

Keeping an eye on those locations will keep you up to date with Events, Planning, and Logistical needs.

Usually requests for help with events or ways to get involved with and support Veterans and their families; will go to the Facebook Page first.

Here's what we did with donations in 2017:

Our Watchwords

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.

– Theodore Roosevelt
