Our Mission & Vision
The Mission of Unite Our Troops is to reform transition assistance programs across all military branches via legislative action, thus addressing a root cause of Veteran unemployment, homelessness, and suicide.
Our Vision is to focus on the Department of Defense, at onset, to end Veteran unemployment, homelessness, and suicide through universal transition assistance.
The Loya-Sears Bill gives voice to active duty military and Veterans, ensuring accountability and transparency within agencies charged with TAP oversight and reform, specifically U.S. Department of Defense (DOD), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Transparency is needed to develop a culture of trust among servicemembers with the agencies they rely upon, specifically through routine sharing of information regarding TAP performance and outcomes. Accountability is necessary to hold the Department of Defense answerable to all stakeholders for all actions and results related to TAP. It maintains that the DOD must assume responsibility and leadership in providing the best possible opportunities for active duty military planning to transition out of the service. The DOD dedicates resources for recruit training to create Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines, and is morally obligated to provide the same dedicated resources to Transitioning Servicemembers (TSMs) choosing to exit the military.
