Community Matters

August 25, 2021

Combined Arms is an organization of action. We’re malleable, innovative, disruptive, aggressive, and a little rough around the edges. I’d have it no other way. We struggled, both individually and collectively, with how to process the fall of Afghanistan, as well as how to best support our community. In typical Combined Arms fashion, we went from ideation to action in less than 24 hours. We decided to host a series of community conversations for veterans, for Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs), and for both groups, together.

Things Are Different Now

August 16, 2021

In light of Afghanistan’s fall to the Taliban, I find myself at a loss for words, but not emotions. Anger, depression, uncertainty, hopelessness, and anxiety - to name a few. Thoughts back to the grape rows of Zhari District, complete with coloring book contests with the local kids, chai and naan sit downs with village elders, and pre-combat patrol jokes with LT. Ahkmed (one of the greatest and bravest Afghan warriors I fought beside), on one hand, and firefights, IEDs, and fear on the other.

2020 ANNUAL IMPACT REPORT

July 22, 2021

In 2020, our nation wrestled with the challenges of inequality and social injustice. We took it upon ourselves to stand up for what is right, and to support our broader community in times of need. 2020 also confronted our nation with the value of health and connection in our lives. We learned our own resilience and strength. For Combined Arms, that notion was reinforced as the core of our service model is rooted in health and connection. 2020 further proved our relevance to the community. Focused on the social determinants of health for our veterans and military families, we experienced growth like no other year.
