“Take Care of Veterans”! Not one more! Objective Zero is growing within the group of Sexual Assault Response Victim Advocates in Grafenwoeher, Germany. Our local Chapter of the Tower VFW, has members spreading the word. We have a very large Community of Combat Veterans from Afghanistan and Iraq. As we vacation in Ireland, we are spreading the word of Objective Zero by means of educating world-wide vacationers from NATO Countries. We’ve handed out the little white Objective Zero cell-phone “person” holder. We are also handing out hundreds of Objective Zero pens. Santa will be passing the word throughout the Tower Barracks and Rose Barracks Military Communities.

Great guys with a great app. I’m signed up as a counselor on the app for veterans suffering with PTSD to be able to reach out to in times of crisis.

I had the pleasure of meeting Justin and hearing why this nonprofit was started. Coming from a family of veterans, I don't see why people wouldn't support Objective Zero.

Objective Zero is a volunteer-led and run nonprofit that allows the military community to get support or give support on the Objective Zero App. I can select the times I am available to give support and can do it from anywhere. I have gone through the Ambassador training and been able to use that training to support others that are going through a difficult time. It is very rewarding!
