We Got Your Six was founded by 3 veterans who have a desire to help their fellow veterans in need. One of the founding members was even homeless himself for a little bit, and that is how he first learned about the problem facing other vets.
MISSION STATEMENT: We Got Your Six is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping homeless Veterans rebuild their lives and redevelop their self-confidence. Helping them get back on their feet and back to living a solid stable meaningful life.
We will accomplish this through temporary accommodations, housing assistance, employment, and education opportunities. Group events/activities and community events to help build relationships with the locals and get them involved with the veterans road to stability.
VISION STATEMENT: To help the homeless veterans of the WORLD to get off the streets and reconnect with the society and their loved ones.
In the military, “got your six” means “I’ve got your back.” The saying originated with World War I fighter pilots referencing the rear of an airplane as the six o’clock position. If you picture yourself at the center of a clock face, the area directly in front of you is twelve o’clock. Six o’clock is what lies behind you. On a battlefield, your “six” is the most vulnerable. So, when someone tells you that they’ve “got your six,” it means they’re watching your back. By extension, that person expects you to have their back as well. “Got your six” is now a ubiquitous term in the military that also highlights the way military members look out for each other.
