The Warrior Alliance

Our mission is to help Warriors and their families achieve a fulfilling civilian life by promoting collaboration between the organizations that can support them during the transition from military service. We believe that collaboration drives successful outcomes, and not just for individual Warriors but for the entire veteran services community. That’s why we partner with companies, non-profits and key influencers who share our vision. Together, we can help Warriors navigate their newest mission – civilian life – with confidence and competence. With thousands of organizations committed to serving Warriors, it can be tough knowing which ones to use. That’s why we’ve curated a catalog of best in class service providers – organized by category – that supports warriors on their journey.

“The core focus of GallantFew is one-on-one mentoring by a veteran with a veteran.  We share lessons learned on active duty, but traditional transition doesn’t share transition lessons learned.  We want to change that, and we want to prevent veterans from becoming isolated and frustrated. . . Our mission’s goal is to help you achieve a civilian life full of purpose and hope.  We can’t create it for you, YOU have to own it.”
