World Military Veterans Foundation
Our foundation started in 2015 in the Netherlands with a beautiful idea. Now 3 years later we are making progress by starting dialogue’s worldwide. We already shipped to 30 different countries and we are ready for the next step.
Every country has it’s own veteran symbol that is accepted in their country. Once abroad for business or vacation the veteran symbol loses its power in recognition in a different country. Therefore we designed a international symbol. The three elements are recognizable in every part of the world. So start the dialogue. With a simple hello will change your day!
We are convinced that a simple hello will change your day. And every day more stories are being told to each other. Some with a smile and some with a tear. We need your support to find a charity where we want to start a collaboration with and make donations. Please fill in our contact page and tell us which organisation you would to suggest.
WHAT VETERANS ARE
After serving, men and women of all ages return to society as veterans, bringing with them the experience they have acquired elsewhere in the world and in the military. Veterans are therefore not just the heroes from past wars, as is so often thought. Veterans are men and women, young and old, who left the safety of their own homes to help others and to serve their country. They return to their local society and either continue working for the military or start on a new career path. In whatever way they continue their lives after working for the military, they all have one thing in common – they are veterans and must never be forgotten.
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND RECOGNITION
Veterans who are willing to share their experiences don’t always do this. It’s a topic that’s not easily talked about with family and friends, and very often people aren’t aware that someone they know is a veteran. This international symbol and this platform will help to generate discussion. Veterans should, must and will be seen. This symbol breaks the ice and results in pride becoming a common factor for veterans (amongst themselves) and non-veterans around them. In addition to sharing their experiences of working for the military, veterans also share a strong feeling of pride and loyalty with each other. Our wish is that they can find such support in their own immediate surroundings.
