Home Base is an organization created in 2009 and has been providing service to over 8,000 post 9/11 veterans ever since, according to The News-Press. This national organization helps families and veterans deal with serious problems like post traumatic stress disorder, after serving in the U.S. military through clinical care. Home Base offers veterans a chance to recover. Home Base has raised awareness for the organization as a whole and for the Warrior Health and Fitness Program, which helps veterans address their struggles and issues through physically and mental activities. 

This year, Home Base hopes to raise enough money for veterans to enjoy the fitness program in Southwest Florida, according to The News-Press. It's not only offered to veterans for free, but it gives them a chance at improving their overall lifestyles. From knowledge about a healthy diet to managing stress and providing guidance on proper exercise, this program aims to create a positive experience for these men and women who are in need.

"(The program) makes a big difference because we know from all the newest research that we have to stop separating mind and body," said Armando Hernandez, the Warrior Health and Fitness program manager for Southwest Florida."Once we have them doing fitness, we can help them with the mental skills, diet and sleep."

In previous years, a golf tournament and gala have been held to raise awareness and raise funds, The News-Press stated. This year there will be an additional golf outing held. The proceeds of each ticket sold will go to the Warrior and Health Fitness program to make a difference in the lives of veterans.
