Both the mission and the management of this organization exceed expectations. They are completely focused on the wounded vet's well being and ability to be independent through work. I highly recommend them.

Skip and his wife are so passionate about helping veterans find jobs. The first time I met him, he read over my resume, and asked me what I really wanted out of life. Even though I found a job through another company that helps veterans and spouses get hired; I know if I reached out to him today, he would do his best to find me a job. :)

I am a veteran and college graduate. I would not be employed today without the assistance of Able Forces. With dignity and respect, thank you.

I have worked with the Able Forces team for a number of years now and they consistently renew my faith in humanity with their selfless work to employ our disabled veterans. They effectively manage resources to ensure the veterans they serve receive the benefit of donations made by the public. But, at the core, the greatest service is that in providing work for disabled veterans they are restoring self sufficiency, respect and confidence.

Great organization. Have known Skip for several yeara and the work and assistance they provide to veterans is outstanding. I have seen veterans in that direction and they have received valuable training and certifications to enable the veterans to obtain employment with the newly received certifications. They are "down-to-earth" people with one agenda... servicing veterans"...

I met the folks at Able Forces last year and have been continuously impressed by their dedication to our wounded veterans. They are smart people with great connections that tirelessly work towards their mission of getting our vets back into the workplace. Whether it's a physical or psychological impairment, Skip matches them with an appropriate group. Through getting work, these amazing warriors find their confidence and sense of worth again. Truly an amazing group of people working on a national level.

Mid 2011 I submitted my retirement packet to the Army. In January of 2012, one of my leaders told me about Able Forces and its mission to exclusively employ Wounded, Ill and Injured Veterans. I learned that its founders Skip Rogers and Joe Cunningham were looking for and Operations Manager and I decided to apply. After a few months of phone calls, emails and an interview, I was blessed with a job offer. It’s now three years later and I couldn’t be happier. Skip and Joe are the “life blood” and the beating heart of Able Forces. Most non-profits I have have reviewed cause me to pose the question “how can this be a non-profit when the founders are making $250k a year”? Skip and Joe’s dedication to taking care of Veterans is second to none and on many occasions the support for Veterans comes right out of their pockets. Able Forces is the only true non-profit I have ever come across. When Able Forces receives a donation, you can “take it to the bank” that every single penny of every single dollar will go to help Veterans in need. Able Forces is an amazing company to be a part of and I am very blessed to be a Team Member supporting the Able Forces mission.
HOOAH!!
