One of the important aspects of a successful transition out of the military and into civilian life is to connect with a group of people who feel like family. Veteran service organizations in Greater Green Bay are growing and thriving and can serve as a jumping-off point for getting to know new people in the area.
This is a place where you can reconnect with your tribe.

Serving you and the community

Representative Mike Gallagher served two back-to-back deployments in Iraq. Now he represents the 8th district of Wisconsin, an area that covers Brown County and Greater Green Bay. Congressman Gallagher launched the Northeast Wisconsin (NEW) Battalion and Welcome Home Sponsor Program in Green Bay in 2017 to provide recently returned veterans with a community sponsor who could help guide you through the transition process locally.
