VetBuds is a non-profit group where the members share a common bond of military service and the desire to provide assistance to veterans directly within the scope of our personal resources, and indirectly by our combined business, social and personal knowledge and connections.
Mission: VetBuds is a group of military veterans whose purpose is to provide assistance to other veterans.
Vision: Veterans Supporting Veterans
Please refer your veteran friends to us and ask them to join the “VetBuds” LinkedIn group. Please join us in appreciation and service to our nation’s veterans. For information contact us at Info@VetBuds.US

The Johns Creek VetBuds group has permanently moved the meetings to the THIRD Wednesday of each month at 0730 at the Uptown Cafe. See the “Groups” tab for details.
VetBuds is honored to be working with The Impact Group in an effort to provide transition housing and training to homeless veterans. We will have room for up to eight veterans at a time. Much more exciting news will be forthcoming as we proceed. Right now the focus is on getting vets in the home for the holidays.
Thank you to Paul Romanick, Tom Merkel, Glenn Spears, Kent Sharp and EVERYONE who is making this home possible for our Brothers in need of clean, safe, quality housing.
