for Makua Aloha Center
 KINGSLAND, GA
Want to start a coffee house that specializes in assisting veterans with every need they may have too include food education, how to get assistance with clinics, transportation, and any other need they will have to include a veteran service officer on site. I am a retired submariner with two masters degrees and a Christian counselor on site with a PHD in counseling to help in any way we can. Just a place to go and talk to other veterans so they can help each other. We live in Kingsland GA next to Kings Bay Naval Submarine base. So there is a large contingent of retired veterans here with no place to gather. Our goal is to open a place for them to gather and learn from each other to get things done, that they need from each other. It will be a non profit under Makua Aloha Center website for information is makuaalohacenter.com. Please help me to help our other veterans in need.

Fed a homeless Vet yesterday who had no where to go and needed something to eat. These are the types of things we will eventually be able to do at the coffee shop, as no one should be hungry especially my fellow Vets.
