For over a decade, Sentinels of Freedom has been committed to setting wounded Veterans up for success. Their unique two to four-year scholarship program pairs Veterans with a mentor, and helps them craft the specific and necessary skills to succeed as a civilian. They pride themselves in being more than just a hand out, they continue to work with the Veterans long term to ensure their success.
Donations made to Sentinels of Freedom go to its various injured Veteran programs. The main program is the Sentinels of Freedom Scholarship. This scholarship program helps pay for housing, full time education, financial planning services, networking, and mentorship. The goal is to allow injured Veterans to focus on their studies and life goals while in the program. Being an injured Veteran is enough of a struggle without adding the challenges that come with transitioning into civilian life. Sentinels of Freedom’s programs are aimed to ease that transition as much as possible.
Anvil Builders is considered a product of the Sentinels of Freedom program. HT Tran, credits his ability to start this San Francisco based construction company on the resources provided to him by Sentinels of Freedom. For over six years, the Anvil Builders team has worked on various jobs in the Bay Area, including the massive and expansive Trans Bay Terminal project.
The individuals featured in the video are all actual military Veterans employed by Anvil Builders. Each with their own background, goals, and accomplishments. Although they were not enrolled in the Sentinels of Freedom program, none of them hesitated to help bring awareness to the program. As HT said, “We Veterans, never stop serving”.
As we kick this campaign off on November 11th, Veterans Day, Surface Shields couldn’t be more honored to work with two organizations that are truly Tougher Than The Jobsite™. A Sincere thank you to Anvil Builders and Sentinels of Freedom for your passion to Never Stop Serving.
