And just in case you didn’t know how totally over-the-top amazing The Mission Continues is, they are an organization dedicated to empowering post-9/11 veterans to become leaders in their communities. They award veterans with six-month community service fellowships at local nonprofits where they tackle pressing social needs and work to bridge the gap between military and civilian life for themselves and the community at large.
