“Why Wyakin? Wyaknot? I am a big advocate of helping those who are helping themselves and they might just need a little direction. I see reasonable support for Vets that are in bad shape and really need that help. I support those groups wholeheartedly. The group that seems to receive far less support is the group of motivated vets in transition that are just overlooked as they are seen as “functional”. I want to see this group as “Successful” and imagine this group of vets becoming successful, in turn, they become the generation that provides direction and support to the next group of vets and so on. Wyakin believes in this strategy as one of its main pillars. The Wyakin pillars are set up to create perpetual renewal and lift generations of veterans in this situation for the foreseeable future. That is why I am investing my time with Wyakin and the Warriors.
