I’ve been an Alumni of Warrior S.O.A.R. for 4 years. In that time I’ve traveled the country to events with a band of brothers that just continues to grow year after year. Every few months we get together and laugh until our faces hurt. There seems to be a few new members every year that become part of the platoon. That’s what veterans at Warrior S.O.A.R realize. We get together and have fun all the time. However, there is a very serious element between some veterans that understand the concept of rebuilding your platoon mentality. We talk, we dig in and see what’s going on in the veterans life. We support each other through all of our connected resources in the veterans space. It’s an organization that builds veterans back up through any means necessary and gives them a community that understands them. I’ve found my platoon again and I encourage other veterans to attend Warrior S.O.A.R. Events in the future.

While volunteering for Warrior S.O.A.R. at one of its annual golf tournament events, I discovered how much thought is given to ensure a positive memorable experience for both tournament participants and volunteers.

During discussions concerning finances, I've been impressed by the focus on ensuring veterans benefit from all the efforts of fundraising. I've not heard anyone behind the scenes suggesting enriching themselves, something that happens too often in various organizations, to include nonprofits. Warrior S.O.A.R. is doing the good work as advertised!

Working alongside Warriors SOAR personnel, Shane, Brian, Joe and Tammy, was an honourable experience to see how they interact with Veterans struggling in society. To see how the general public responded to them and supporting Grumpy's Dogs to benefit their cause. An amazing group of people.

Working with Shannon and Warriors SOAR to help our wounded Heroes has been incredible. Being able to give back and help our Heroes is something close to my heart. The ability to grow this organization and help more Heroes from around the country is going to be special.

Great non-profit working towards helping veterans getting back on their feet and showing them they are still important. This group is always looking for ways to help and have great attitudes throught everyone in the organization. Without them, i may not be here today thanks to one of their sports programs.

My name is Timothy Howley, USN (ret), 24 year veteran and I was introduced to Warriors Soar in 2018 and I have been engaged and involved with this great non-profit organization since that time.

This organization has helped me connect with other veterans from all five branches of the service while playing in the annual Boston Baseball Fantasy Camp.

I have met some fantastic and energetic veterans throughout my time with being involved. I do have the opportunity in getting together annually because I do live in Fort Myers, Florida where the baseball event is hosted.

I would strongly recommend this organization to any and all veterans that are looking for a way to reconnect with society and to better themselves and would strongly encourage them to get their families involved as well.

Since I have been on board with Warrior SOAR I have seen first hand the great work they have done for our Men and Women of our US Military. From send Veterans to Boston Red Sox fantasy camp to Cruisees out on Lake Champlain. I am proud to be a part of this great non-profit organization. Veterans helping Veterans.

Warriors SOAR is a great program for Veterans and has provided me with the opportunity to participate in programs like the Boston Baseball Fantasy Camp, golf outings, and other events around the NE area. Shannon Blake's vision for where Warriors SOAR is headed and the impact that it will have for fellow Veterans is amazing and I am happy that I was able to meet and connect with others through their programs. Many thanks to all of the volunteers, and sponsors who make this organization a fantastic resource for Veterans.

I was deployed with MAJ Blake to Afghanistan in 2003. Since being back we lost multiple Warriors as they couldn’t deal with reality any longer. I too have found myself in these situations over the years. Last year MAJ Blake had invited me to the Red Sox Fantasy Camp and I accepted not knowing much about it at all. I’ve been an Advid Sox Fan since I was born. When I got to the Hotel to check in, I see many familiar faces that I watched play ball for years. It was mind blowing seeing these professional gamers. Then to actually meet and just be buddies with the likes of Lenny Dinardo, Keith Folk and Alan Embree who where instrumental in Reversing the curse in 2004. These and many more professionals were amazing to actually hang out and talk with you like you’ve known each other for years. All I can say is this program gave me a new outlook on everyday life. Looking forward to this camp every year gives me that outlet that is much needed. Thank you warriors Soar for the great opportunity to stop worrying all the time.

I’m a 100% disabled vet, both physically and mentally. I spent most of my time in the basement and rarely left the house except for medical appointments.
I had met Shannon Blake previously and he called one day. He knew I had been going through a pretty rough time and offered me a once in a lifetime opportunity to play baseball with some Red Sox greats down at Spring Training in Florida! Who wouldn’t want to jump on that kind of opportunity? Me apparently. I hemmed and hawed. Fat and out of any kinda shape but round. Haven’t played baseball since high school. I’d just embarrass myself, yada yada yada.
Shannon kept pitching it to me. It’s fun, not competitive, get me out of gloomy New England and into Florida sunshine (I suffer from Seasonal Affective Disorder), plus I already knew him so I wouldn’t be alone. Fine.
Folks, it was one of the greatest times of my life. I met some of my childhood heroes. Played ball with them, smoked cigars with them, just sat and BS’d with them and I’m the other participants. And they treated us veterans like celebrities.
There are other examples of events I’ve participated in , but here’s my favorite part of Warrior SOAR, and that’s the personal connection Shannon ensures to make with everyone he meets.
He has called me many, many times over the years checking in on me.

Major Shannon Blake and Warriors Soar is an amazing organization that helps re integrate our Vets back into society. He needed the help and now he’s helping his brothers in the same way. Whether sailing on Lake Champlain or hitting the fantasy baseball camps, they are making a true difference and providing a much needed service for our Vets who allow us to live our lives as we do!
