Veterans Base Camp's
"Battle Buddies"


   VBC's "Battle Buddies" are those organizations, businesses, families and individuals who

through their generous donations of money, time or talents to VBC's 

mission to support our veterans, first responders and those who are vulnerable in our

community have helped it make it a reality.  

Our partners walk along side of us.  They work with us. 

We are blessed to bless through their support,

and we just want to say:

                                                                               employees the opportunity to volunteer at VBC to rehab the

                                                                               pool, pavilion, cabins, grounds and main facility, HVAC
