The Jacksonville Service Platoon is focused on improving the quality of life among those facing major life transitions. Through community service, mentorship, and a pay-it-forward model, the Jacksonville Service Platoon provides a sense of community and purpose for veterans in the Jacksonville area. The Jacksonville Service Platoon Operational partner is Mayport Elementary school where by we work with this to enhance their coastal science education curriculum.

The Service Platoon recently deployed to a local shelter for women and families in crisis. A garden on-site provides individuals at the shelter a safe and calm environment. The Service Platoon revitalized the garden by cleaning the grounds, installing new berms and planting fresh flowers.



For many, the Service Platoon is more than an opportunity to serve again. The Service Platoon recently participated in a charity run together and is represented at community events throughout Jacksonville.
