About Us

We understand the struggle
of our fellow Veterans.

What makes Reveille Bridge Different

We fill the hole other organizations leave for Veterans to fill themselves. Other organizations operate from 9am – 5pm weekdays or weekends only. This leaves a significant hole in service availability.

Sounding a Reveille for Camaraderie

Opening our doors at 5 PM on weekdays, 10 AM on weekends, to bring entertainment, support groups, training, and community activities.

Bridging the Connections between Veterans

Reveille Bridge promotes camaraderie between Veterans. During our time in service, we leaned on each other. By providing a healing environment through which similar camaraderie can be established, our Veterans can support each other. As Bill Withers says in his famous song, “Lean on Me.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Lee Roberts, CEO/Founder

Lee grew up in Aiken, SC and attended Navy JROTC for four years. After high school, he served in the Navy between 1979 and 1987 as an Aviation Fire Control Technician (AQ). He was privileged to serve with VA-34 Blueblasters A-6 (AIMD and organizational maintenance) and with VFA-106 Gladiators F/A-18 (organizational maintenance). Lee says the greatest experience he had was becoming a Shellback in 1983 while onboard the USS America (CV-66).

In 2019, Lee wanted to find a purpose in life. His mentor suggested he find a charity to help. This led him on a journey of self-discovery. He realized that while he could help other organizations, those organizations didn’t provide him with the challenges he sought. That led him to dig deeper and uncover hidden truths.

He realized that Veteran organizations focused on either suicide prevention, homelessness, or employment skilling. “It felt like organizations were trying to heal only one part of the Veteran when the whole Veteran needs help,” Lee said.

Therefore, he decided to start a new type of charity focused on the whole Veteran. This idea became Reveille Bridge Veterans Foundation, Inc.
