Embracing Self-Reflection

At After Action Review, we don’t shy away from self-reflection.

Community really is key for moving forward in life—no man is an island. At AAR, we’re hugely proud of our supportive community of veterans. Engage in discussions, share insights, and learn from the stories of others to enhance your own experiences. You can connect, find inspiration, and celebrate personal and collective triumphs together.

Your Growth, Your Pace

Personal growth is a unique and individualized journey. And it’s never linear. One day you might take a small step, the next you’ll be making giant leaps. And it can often be “two steps forward, one back”. Whatever your growth looks like, our resources are here to support you at your own pace. We’ll be here to celebrate your progress, every step of the way.

About Us

Who We Are

Did we mention that here at AAC, we’re former veterans ourselves? This means that we’re deeply acquainted with the extraordinary pressures you’ve been under to perform your professions. The sacrifices you’ve made and the triumphs you’ve celebrated, we’ve been there. Rather than being mere observers; we’re participants who have walked the same path that you are treading today. 

Our hope is that you’ll use our community and resources as lifelines. We’d be ecstatic to build a profound connection with you, and to see you bond with fellow warriors in our network. Not only do we understand the intricacies of your journey up until today—we hold them in the highest possible regard. You’re safe with us. 

Our Community

Lean On Me

Shared Experiences

You never know what life will throw at you. Relationships may be hard; how can they be the same when you’re not the person you were before? Through services such as our smartphone app, our 24-hour lifeline chat, and our online meetings, we hope to create a sense of community with kindred spirits who support one another through thick and thin.

Celebrating Your Journey

Here, at AAC, we want you to know how much we value your contribution to our country. While you may have experienced trauma and inimaginable experience, it’s important to remember what you’ve brought to other humans and to America. Rather than viewing your journey as a negative, we’d like to celebrate it for making you into the person you are today.

The Camaraderie You Crave

When you work in the military or as a first responder, the sense of workplace camaraderie is unmatched. And now, of course, there’s a hole where that sense of companionship once was. At AAC, we want to recreate that. Through our technology-driven services and K9 program, we’ll help rebuild that mutual trust and friendship. It might look a bit different, but the important thing is that you feel it.

Valuing Your Experiences

When you’ve experienced the things you have, it can be hard to explain them to others. How can you find the words to explain? Rather than being mere anecdotes, your experiences have huge potential. They can serve as sources of inspiration and empowerment for others. By sharing your stories, you provide hope and guidance for other veterans who may be navigating similar challenges

Continued Care

Your journey onwards through life is bound to be marked by both challenges and successes. At After Action Review, we’ll be here with you throughout every step of that journey. If something great happens, tell us. If you’re struggling, we want to know about it. Lean on us and we’ll have your back, offering unwavering support, camaraderie, and a wealth of resources.
