MISSION:

To honor, assist and raise support for our Warriors and their Families who sacrifice so much through selfless service to our nation.

ABOUT US:

“Bridging The Gap of Georgia” is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting public awareness and raising support for our Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines and Coast Guardsmen and the programs which assist their recovery from emotional wounds, as well as those which facilitate their effective transition from military service back into productive pursuits in the civilian sector. Key to this is including the support of their Families, without which we cannot effectively function in the military. We further pay homage and keep strong the flame of remembrance burning for those who’ve made the ultimate sacrifice for the freedom of their fellow man or who have yet to return home from the field of battle. “Bridging The Gap of Georgia” also encourages public introspection as to the courage, heroism and commitment demonstrated by our military men and women through the stories behind their sacrifices and trials of war.

VISION:

Lead “Bridging The Gap of Georgia” to be an effective, modular “action arm” that helps keep patriotism strong and which can interface / partner with and support any eligible program, activity or organization that supports our Soldiers, their Families and which seeks to honor the sacrifice of those brave men and women who give their all to keep liberty’s light burning strong.

This is a community issue — not just a government problem. One that we can end here in Georgia if we come together as a community, as churches, as associations, as employers, as mentors, and as people giving veterans their greatest chances for success in a world where they feel hopeless, lost, and alone.

OUR PHILOSOPHY AT BRIDGING THE GAP:

“Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.

One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up.

As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean.

He came closer still and called out “Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?”

The young man paused, looked up, and replied “Throwing starfish into the ocean.”

“I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?” asked the somewhat startled wise man.

To this, the young man replied, “The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them in, they’ll die.”

Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, “But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can’t possibly make a difference!”

At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said,

“It made a difference for that one.”
