Our volunteers include active duty military, investment brokers, law-enforcement officials, teachers, civic leaders, business personnel, college students, former offenders, and academics. Fundamentally, the Green Beret Project believes in the power of relationships and strives to identify and establish collaborative partnerships with numerous other organizations to gain greater effectiveness and efficiencies by taking a whole of effort approach.” Green Beret Project
