The voice of the American veteran is a powerful force for change.
Mission Roll Call® is a nonpartisan movement providing veterans with a powerful, unified voice that is heard by our nation’s leaders and communities.
Provide veterans with a powerful, unified voice that is heard by our nation’s leaders and communities.
Traditional advocacy groups require veterans to voice their opinions through layers of bureaucracy at their local, state, and national levels, where veterans lose their voice. Using modern technology, Mission Roll Call hears the unfiltered voice of veterans across America and tells their collective story directly to lawmakers and interest groups.
Roughly half of veterans are unaffiliated with the VA or any veteran service organization. Mission Roll Call is the first of its kind: a movement that gives every veteran a voice on the issues that are most important to them. It is a community where veterans and their families share stories, voice concerns, and present solutions for their benefit.
We speak this unified truth directly to Washington, taking our communities’ concerns and solutions to advocate for positive change.
Connecting to veterans, their families, and policy makers.
Educating our members through original MRC content and media
Inquiring members’ opinions through polls and petitions.
Informing policy makers, other VSOs, and our members of the results.
Suicide affects U.S. veterans at a higher rate than the general population. It does not discriminate based on branch, service type, gender, combat experience, or any other obvious metric. Mission Roll Call assists veterans in crisis and advocates for policies that would reverse the trend of veteran suicide in America.
ACCESS TO HEALTHCARE
Mission Roll Call educates veterans about their healthcare options, helping them navigate a confusing bureaucracy or find care in the community. We collect these stories and share them with lawmakers to inform national policymaking and improve healthcare outcomes.
TRIBAL AND RURAL VETERANS
Tribal and Rural veterans face unique challenges to accessing resources after their service. Mission Roll Call amplifies their voices to ensure they receive the healthcare and benefits they earned.
