Operation: Rocking Down the Mississippi River

We created US Vet Connect Inc. and are a strong family nonprofit 501c3 with the vision to build a national organization bound by honor and pride, with the sole purpose of helping as many humans in need as possible, for as long as possible. US Vet Connect Inc launched the same month that covid19 hit in early 2020, we waited for things to get better but things only got worse. 

We knew we had to switch gears temporarily from our

adaptive lifestyle upgrades to potentially capturing

the hearts of Americans across our nation.


Did you know that veterans suicide has jumped over 20% during these covid lockdowns?


We have an official announcement:

Operation: Rocking Down The River is officially underway!! The journey in our 1987(new to me) 32ft Wellcraft St. Tropez down the river toward the Gulf of Mexico is in honor of veterans suicide prevention awareness month, September. As this month comes to a close US Vet Connect Inc is making the passage to hopefully inspire veterans to get out of their heads and find some adventure of their own. 


We started this journey on September 12, 2020. 

19 years and a day later, we have not forgotten!
