Welcome to Collier County Veterans Council.

........................................................................................................................

The Veterans Council of Collier County is the umbrella organization of the 13 veterans groups that exist in Collier County, Florida.
 

The Veterans Council is comprised of representatives from each group and meets the 3rd Wednesday of each month.

 

We bring all groups together for networking and fellowship in an otherwise fragmented community.  We each have our allegiances, but are fighting the same battle.  United we stand.

Meetings are open to all veterans.

4th Quarter President's Newsletter

To all our friends and Members of the Collier County Veterans Council,

This is the Fourth quarter newsletter and like all our previous ones, I am very proud to be part of this great experience with you. I wish all of you and your families the very best that life has to offer.

This year we have witnessed many record setting weather conditions that inflicted damage to property and human life across the USA and abroad.  We experienced phenomena’s ranging anywhere from tornados, earthquakes, hurricanes, lightning strikes, flooding, fires and more. I want to start this letter with a prayer to have a safe road to recovery for all those families that were affected in any of these categories.

During Hurricane Irma, the majority of the CCVC Board of Directors helped many in need to prepare before, during and after the devastating storm. This is when human life works as a team. It does not matter what your sex, race, religion, political preferences are. What matters most is how we care to protect each other. I am grateful to live in the United States of America, a country known to be humane, compassionate, kind, considerate, understanding, sympathetic, tolerant and so much more.

I would like all those members reading this take a moment to teach our younger men and women that no matter what kind of devastation occurs,  we the American people should stand during the National Anthem and face the American Flag.   They should learn the true understanding of the word  Freedom. A word that comes with a heavy price from soldiers, sailors or airmen who have fought for it and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Freedom is a  word that is needed all over the world and all those who are still fighting for our right to be free.

The Veterans Council has a lot to offer our civilian and veteran communities. We are the biggest communications hub in the South West Florida region. Our monthly meeting has grown in size and we always provide new and updated knowledge to educate the veteran community.

January of this year, a few of our members have asked me a question “Does the Collier County Veterans Council have a 501(c)(3) which makes my donation a tax deduction?” I now have your answer. “Yes Sept 21st 2017 the CCVC received the 501(c)(3) Exemption status.”

With warm regards,

William Carl, CCVC President

Quote of the Month

The Power of Attitude:

"Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we react to what happens; not by what life brings to us, but by the attitude we bring to life.  A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes.  It is a catalyst...a spark that creates extraordinary results."
