Combined Arms exists to accelerate the transition from military to civilian life. The faster veterans integrate into our community, the faster we are able to harness their passions and skills to make an impact. We are here to connect these veterans to resources so they can make “civilian” their next branch of service.

Backpacks For Life, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that serves homeless and at-risk veterans and their families. Backpacks For Life is committed to improving the standards of living for veterans struggling with reintegration into civilian life while simultaneously empowering them with hope and a sense of security in their well-being throughout the process. We do this by bridging the gap between veterans and the resources available to them so that they can get their lives back on track and on a path towards self-sufficiency. Founded by a Marine Veteran and his spouse, since 2014, Backpacks For Life has been serving our veterans in two ways: by regularly distributing backpacks filled with supplies and resources to homeless veterans, and providing coaching and mentorship to veterans seeking resources, care, and assistance in navigating government programs. To date, Backpacks For Life has distributed over 7,600 backpacks to Veterans in 21 states. This November, Backpacks For Life will launch a digital platform called ROGER, for Veterans, spouses & family members as part of their mentorship program.
