"In all you do, do with all your might. Things done by half measures are never done right."
The Veterans Council of Collier County is the umbrella organization of the 20 veterans groups that exist in Collier County,
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.
