Welcome to Collier County Veterans Council.

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

The Veterans Council of Collier County is the umbrella organization of the 19 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.

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."



We now have a donate button for our organization.  Donations are always greatly appreciated!  100% of the donations go right back out into our community.  This allows us to continue to hold events in the county and help veterans whenever we can.  We thank you for your continued support.
