Remembering 9/11: Military Inspiration from The Mission Continues
It has been almost 20 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks changed the world forever. It was the first major “where were you when?” moment for many of America’s younger adults. It also inspired millions of those young adults to step up and serve our country.
The Mission Continues’ Operation Enduring Service is working to preserve these stories of inspiration for years to come. They want to hear from those who were serving, those who were inspired to serve, and those who continue to be inspired by incredible acts of service over the past 20 years.
What is The Mission Continues?
This organization is focused on building a movement that empowers veterans to continue their service, and encourages communities to take advantage of veteran talent, skills, and preparedness to create a visible impact. Their programs deploy veteran volunteers to work alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders. These programs serve to improve educational resources, tackle food insecurity, foster neighborhood identity, and more.
