MISSION UNITED: Highlighting Veteran Resources and Stories

Posted April 15, 2024

A local veteran, Scott McLean, started a veteran podcast featuring agencies that serve the veteran community. Every Monday, the VetsConnet Podcast will feature a veteran story or an agency meant to highlight resources or lessons learned. The first two agencies, HERD Foundation and 22 Project, are already out, with national-level organizations also on the docket.

With help from the VA and MISSION UNITED, Scott will continue to promote resources and issues facing the veteran community in the local area and nationally. The podcast is available on all major streaming services.

If you have a veteran with an interesting story, an agency that you want to highlight, or just an idea for a great episode, you can contact MISSION UNITED or email the show at vetsconnectpodcast@gmail.com.
