What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

One of the greatest issues for those transitioning from Active Duty to civilian life is that is is difficult to find resources in regards to the transition. Also, there are many resources out to help not only the transition from Active Duty to civilian life but to aid our Veterans as well, bu they do not trust them nor do they know how to find them. There is also not a radio station dedicated to our military, both present and past.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Military Brotherhood Radio (MBR) is striving to be a centralized place that both Veterans as well as those transitioning, can turn to in order to find help, to find a sister or a brother who understands what they are going through. MBR is helping Active Duty personnel transition back into civilian life as well as being a center of information for them

MBR continually gathers reliable resources and we put all the information in one place so it is easy to find. We also have public service announcements (PSAs) directed to military personnel. We work to get our name out to the public so our military brothers and sisters can find us when they need us. We are also working on having an online resource area that is separated out by categories based on what they do.

We will have disc jockeys (DJs) with weekly talk shows that highlight different aspects of transitioning into civilian life but also of the struggles Veterans have even after the transition and give strategies on ways to cope. We will have regular PSAs as well. MBR will network with other organizations as well as other radio stations to make sure we have the most current, up-to-date resource information available.

We are in the process of getting PSAs in Hawkins Theaters. Over the Christmas holiday, we gave out baskets to soldiers to help with their mental health. We continually work to increase our listener base as well as improve the programming we offer. We want to add more DJs that are Veterans and give them a voice and an opportunity to reach others.
