ENLISTMENT INITIATIVE

Forging the next generation of warriors.

The U.S. military plays a crucial role in national defense and global peacekeeping. However, declining enlistment rates pose a challenge. Addressing this requires a multifaceted, community-based approach that highlights the merits and rewards of service. REFORGE aims to bridge this gap by working with various community stakeholders.

Reforge stands as a symbol of hope for many young individuals in search of guidance, meaning, and a solid foundation. By nurturing a community dedicated to service and the upliftment of its youthful members, we have the potential to spark renewed enthusiasm for military service, securing a more robust future for our nation's defense and the brave souls willing to safeguard it.

Our focus is on practical engagement. We strive to connect with them where they are, which is the driving force behind our collaboration with local recruiters to organize large-scale events that are entertaining, informative, and highlight the exemplary traits of first responders and military personnel. These gatherings present a chance for veterans to mentor the younger generation and create a unifying space where civilians, veterans, and active-duty personnel can come together.
