Our Mission - #GetOffTheCouch

Disaster Response Missions

This is what SDIA was founded on, and continues to be our primary continued service opportunity. When a natural disaster strikes, teams of skilled Sheep Dogs and other volunteers are deployed to provide immediate “impact assistance” to devastated communities.

Teams provide help through tree and debris removal, muck-out operations, covering roofs & windows, distributing food & water, and other meaningful tasks.

Outdoor Adventures

Disasters are not on a schedule, so we looked for other ways to keep our Sheep Dogs engaged each month – opportunities that would provide them with new challenges and foster camaraderie.

The Outdoor Adventures program accomplishes this, and includes hunting & fishing trips, obstacle course races, skydiving and scuba diving. For our sponsored Sheep Dogs (those injured in combat or the line of duty), these adventures present them with challenges that test their rehabilitation progress, restore independence and self-confidence, and reengage them in living life to the fullest. These opportunities for camaraderie and peer support are vital to inspiring a positive state of mind and perspective.

Do you know of a Sheep Dog in need of assistance?

Very well said brother!!!

SgtMaj thank you. You know sometimes we get complacent, even lazy at times. Lately thungs in my life have grown dull, life has its challenges. Today you just inspired me as a man: Christian, Son, Husband, Father, Veteran, and friend to put on my "armor" and take the fight to the "enemy" God bless you for what you have done for me, and thousands of others. See you tomorrow at the hamburger event. Have a great evening brother !

RAH!!!

Great message Lance, motivated me. Sometimes it's a little lonely doing the right things... particularly the behind the seems such as caring for the elderly and feeding the needy. I appreciate your passion for people's welfare...God speed..out

Beautiful

Today we honor all the brave men and women who willingly paid the price of serving and protecting our country and freedoms with their blood and lives. Your selflessness and courage will never be forgotten.

My Uncle Bentley Halbert died on the USS Duncan during The Battle of Cape Esperance, also known as the Second Battle of Savo Island and, in Japanese sources, as the Sea Battle of Savo Island, took place on 11–12 October 1942, in the Pacific campaign of World War II between the Imperial Japanese Navy and United States Navy. I have his purple heart.
