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"...

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!!

I work with Transitioning Military Service Members. My goal is to bridge the gap between military job seeker and employer. Able Forces has greatly helped with providing many job opportunities to our service men and women and their families.

Great organization with a superb cause. I lead the Greater Washington DC Chpt 353, Military Order of the Purple Heart. Some of my fellow patriots have spoken very highly of the support provided by Able Forces. Also, knowing the leadership of AF for many years I'm positive that its doing what's right for our fellow veterans and is being operated in the best, most ethical manner possible. Well done to all, and good luck in the future.

Able Forces has worked hand-in-hand with the organization that employs me to improve the lives of disabled veterans such as myself. It gives me tremendous joy to see an organization that remains vigilant and dedicated to the women and men of the US Armed Forces. I always make sure to spread their job announcements to my fellow veterans, and I am even expecting to apply to an Able Forces job myself this week.

Thank you to Able Forces

Keep up the great work!

Since I first met Skip at the beginning, We have been working together to get money for his charity and find jobs for his people. We have helped him many times as corp sponsor. You can always count him to help a soldier and I know he was their when i came back from Iraq. I have small business and it is time to give back. Dig deep everyone.

I WORK WITH TRANSITIONING MILITARY AND VETERANS ON A DAILY BASIS. REFERRING THEM TO AN ORGANIZATION SUCH AS ABLE FORCES ALLOWS OUR SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN NATIONWIDE TO ACCESS JOBS THAT GIVE MILITARY SKILLS THE RECOGNITION AND OPPORTUNITY THE DESERVE. WELL DONE, SKIP!
