“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
--Chief Tecumseh, Shawnee Chief

Who We Are
Our primary mission is to aid and assist the transition of America’s servicemen and women returning to civilian life through education, athletics, R&R (Rest and Relaxation), and entertainment. Our secondary mission is to offer training and jobs to these veterans in disaster response and community service, whether national or international.
Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF), a for-profit organization, was established to benefit all veterans, especially those who have proven themselves in combat and are in need of training, services, and jobs. The goal of this organization is to recognize the enormous contribution that a returning vet can make. Our organization was established to aid veterans who have come home after sustaining wounds whether physical, mental, or emotional. We have been battered, tattered and wounded but we are all "BATTLE PROVEN" and reporting for duty!
BPF executes the veterans’ assistance programs funded by Northern Virginia Consortium for Community Development, Inc. (NVCCD). These programs are aimed at job creation, employment and housing assistance, assistance in accessing veterans’ benefits and services, and rebuilding family relationships.
BPF will assist in the location, building/ renovation, and operation of nationwide Veterans Resource Centers (VRC), and Mobile Veterans Service Officer Units (MVSO). BPF will also train veterans to initiate and execute the proposed Olympic Structures Recycling Project (OSRP), help build the proposed Washington International Sports Complex (WISC), and participate in disaster response, cyber-security, and community development programs. In addition, BPF will oversee the creation and operation of Command and Control (C&C) houses for homeless veterans and veterans in transition, and programs designed to encourage a constructive renewal and strengthening of familial relationships through opportunities for rest and relaxation.

We are looking for individuals with military expertise in the following skill sets:
- Disaster Response

Military Transition Initiative
The primary mission of the Battle Proven Transition Initiative is to aid and assist the transition of America’s servicemen and women returning to civilian life through education, athletics, R&R (Rest and Relaxation), and entertainment.
The Battle Proven Medical Initiative is to transition military personnel who served their units in a medical capacity, to civilian certified occupations.
Battle Proven’s medical initiative will bring nurses, combat medics, and service corpsmen under one cause to bring health care to disadvantaged people throughout the U.S. and in international disaster response, i.e.: Doctors Without Borders
Training will conclude with certification and preparation for disaster response on a global scale.
Domestic Violence Initiative
Battle Proven Foundation, LLC (BPF) offers support to victims of domestic violence and disadvantaged women and children. BPF also advocates for the rights of women, veterans and the elderly, civil rights, disaster relief, quality education and the mentoring of youth through cooperative athletics, both nationally and internationally.
Our mission is to assist victims of domestic abuse and disadvantaged women and children nationwide. BPF also assists in the procurement of financial and tangible assets to provide those served a safe place to live while helping to secure their dignity.
BPF does not endorse, support or sponsor any political or religious agendas. The sole focus of BPF is on people in need and the organizations charged with assisting them.
EPC-123 Education Initiative
Members of the teaching profession are painfully aware of the financial burdens placed on many teachers when it comes to assuring their students have all the materials and equipment they need to succeed academically. Even though districts are required to furnish teachers a specified amount of funds each year to purchase needed supplies, teachers routinely encounter expenses throughout the year after that money is exhausted. Therefore, teachers are forced to pay out of their own pockets, beg the district for additional money, or decide to not purchase the materials, thereby reducing the effect of the planned lesson.
Battle Proven Foundation, LLC has developed a program which can help solve this dilemma. The EPC-123 Education Initiative aims to provide teachers much needed funding to purchase materials and supplies, and otherwise improve the quality of the education provided to their students.

Global Disaster Rapid Response Team
Military veterans are specifically trained in disaster response, with skills in communications, medical services, and logistics.
Our global disaster rapid response teams (GDRRT) will provide the world’s first coordinated effort for disaster relief. Whether responding to natural or man-made disasters, the initiative will rely on civilians with military experience to provide much needed aid. Veterans will work in cooperation with the United Nations, The World Bank, International Monetary Fund (IMF) and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs). The GDRRT will provide the skill and manpower required, but so often lacking, in disaster response.
In addition, each VRC will be designed for utilization as a staging area for FEMA, the American Red Cross, and insurance companies, during natural disasters.
Skill sets required
- Law enforcement
- Military Police
- Evidence tracking and handling
- Coordination with international law enforcement
- JAG-maritime and International law
- Advanced first aid
- Pre-natal care
- Nav systems
- Fire and Rescue
- K-9 handling
- Search and Rescue
Incarcerated Veterans Initiative
The Battle Proven Foundation, in coordination with state and federal programs, has come to the determination that every vet deserves a chance to be recognized for their service. The IVI was designed to identify incarcerated vets who have not been given the opportunity for a proper diagnosis by the military for conditions ranging from bi-polar disorder to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). With such a determination we can help vets qualify for the rights and privileges they have earned while on active duty.
