A Veteran-Community Benefit Sharing Project
by Mykel Hawke of Hawke Brand and School

Formerly Known for 20 years as SpecOps, 1994 - 2014

Helping to bring veterans back closer to their communities

Dedicated to the memory of U.S. Army Sergeant First Class, Edward Richmond Homeyer.

THE
IDEA


Get Combat Veterans involved with their Communities in a way that their Combat Experience could be of benefit to their Community when and if disaster should strike.

THE
PLAN


Have one person from a neighborhood community VOLUNTEER some of their time to speak to groups of Vets about what they could do as volunteers helping local emergency responders.

THE
MISSION


Have dedicated people within a neighborhood who know their area work in tandem with local emergency responders and these Vets, now meaningfully purposed as “Community Sentinels.”

THE
EXECUTION


Requires a person or persons who does not need funds or funding and has time to speak with local authorities about providing instruction on how the community can best help them.

A NOTE FROM MYKEL HAWKE



Mykel Hawke

COMMUNITY SENTINELS is not for profit, no one should make money off this. Community Sentinels is not for sale, this concept is a social template for everyone to use.   PLEASE ADOPT and ADAPT.  This is a living vision that will only be made better by the handiwork of others and as each group participates, they will own and improve it.   There are no badges, uniforms, awards, or status associated with these silent heroes.  Trainers, sponsors, and participants are all in it for one reason: to help their fellow man.  


The Community Sentinels are intended to be Silent Heroes.  No one need know they are there until they're needed and then their work shows.   They need not be intrusive on the Community and the Community need not be obligated to the Sentinel; they co-exist, unimpeded but evervigilant and ready to help when the unexpected worst may happen.


I am a Combat Veteran, I have experienced PTSD and I have a Masters in Psychology.  I do not say this will fix, solve, remedy, or change anything.  What I do say is that there is no wrong in trying to do good and in trying to help others; the Vets, the ERP’s, and our neighbors.  I thank everyone whom adopts and adapts this concept as well as those whom support and participate in this mission to do good.  This is only an idea, and it’s only power is in the people.  But what a mighty power that can be if we believe.


If we do save or change one life, then we have done much.  God Bless.
