The Mission Continues is an amazing organization that gives veterans an opportunity to experience leadership in a whole new way. I had the privilege of meeting and getting to know its CEO and Founder, Eric Greitens and am continually inspired by their work. They provide disabled veterans and opportunity to learn new skills and enhance the ones they currently have. They are a shining example of what a veteran's organization should be!

The Mission Continues is a wonderful organization that allows our returning veterans to continue to serve their country as community leaders through various community outreach programs and fellowships. I have personally served as volunteer for several service projects over the last two years in St. Louis and have found that this organization makes a positive impact in our community. There are opportunities of volunteers of all ages to participate.
