As service-connected disabled veterans, we both understand what it feels like to serve our country with pride. As female veterans, we have had our share of disappointments, failures and moments of loneliness. We understand the frustration you feel from not knowing how to file for disability benefits as well as not know where to go to seek mental health services at your most vulnerable moment.

Because of this, we founded The Vet Space™ with our sisters-in-arms in mind. When we were honorably discharged from the military, we were pretty much on our own. We do not want that for another person leaving the military or for those who have been in the civilian world for a while.

Hence, The Vet Space™ is your space. We’re an organization that believes in nurturing and supporting our veterans as they transition out of the military or navigate through PTSD or MST. You will meet others just like you, who refuse to live in shame of their past experiences or current difficulties. We are all victorious at The Vet Space™.

Our cardinal principles of Camaraderie, Commitment and Community are what drive us to do what we do for you.

We are determined that everyone who uses The Vet Space not only feels the camaraderie we once had in the military but that you feel like someone has our back, once again.

We’ve Got Your 6! ~ Sherrell & Tanya
