The Sheepdog Coalition was created to harness the healing power of outdoor group events. The Sheepdog Coalition’s mission is to use recreational activities like hunting, fishing, hiking, surfing, etc., to heal, rekindle and/or build new friendships with other special operations combat veterans with shared experiences. Not all combat veterans are physically limited from our service but share unseen psychological and spiritual wounds from the ravages of combat. We are business owners, chief executive and operating officers for large and small companies, politicians, salespeople and retirees. We are citizen soldiers and we strive to achieve excellence, as we trained for in the military: An absolute, decisive win at life. Our aspiration is to have not one more of our own fall, fail, or take their own life. We must lift up our own. The Sheepdog Coalition exists for this essential purpose. Long live the brotherhood!
