To educate students, coaches and community about the needs of our military veterans.
PURPOSE STATEMENT (The Three E’s): Educate – Empower – Equip
The Honor Group Educates: With nationally recognized events such as The Honor Bowl and School Honor Tours we bring together prep athletics and our highly acclaimed, school speaking team. We tell the story of the sacrifice of a soldier’s life. We teach the students of America about what a hero looks like and they leave changed and inspired with a new sense of purpose and pride for community and our nations veterans.
“Our school and community were blown away by the power of the Honor Tour. We saw our community bind together for a CAUSE like we had never seen before. Thank you for bringing this event to our school”.

“The Honor Bowl Football Invitation is the first and largest high school football showcase on the west coast. The purpose is to educate student’s, coaches and community regarding the needs of our military veterans. Since the debut of THE HONOR BOWL in 2010, this event has played to over 110 schools, community’s and an estimated 100,000 sport fans from seven states. We can’t even estimate how many thousands have seen the event on television.
We want our school to understand and appreciate the troops. We feel if we can take a week to honor our troops it’s totally worth it”.

“Every year our school wants to compete in The Honor Bowl. Our students, coaches and community love this event and we help fund raise to be a part of it”.

The Honor Group Empowers: Since nothing is more empowering than the ability to provide for oneself and family, The Honor Group is committed to helping transitioning service members find meaningful employment. Of all the job program’s focused on veterans that we have reviewed, we believe the HireUSfirst program will be the most effective. We are proud to sponsor HireUSfirst and their efforts to educate members of Congress on the on-going needs of veterans’ employment. To learn more, visit www.hireusfirst.org.
Driven by the deep belief that veterans are civic assets and leaders, The Honor Group works to empower veterans to transform their own lives by serving others and directly impacting their communities. The Honor Group empowers veterans facing the challenge of adjusting to life at home to find new missions. We redeploy veterans in their communities, so that their shared legacy will be one of action and service.
The Honor Group Equips: The vision of our nonprofit is to raise much needed funds to equip injured, ill and wounded veterans who may also suffer from PTS and TBI with tools that will help them return to a normal civilian life. We have purchased specialized all terrain wheelchairs and now we are moving forward by purchasing companion service dogs who are well known to have a strong positive effect in helping resolve combat related PTS issues.
