UNIT 1000


Est. October 2013

We are a non-profit organization With Patriot Members from WWII, Korea, Vietnam, Cold War, Gulf War, Afghanistan and Iraq. We have Patriots in Baldwin, Ben Hill, Berrien, Brooks, Camden, Coffee, Colquitt, Cook, Glynn, Houston, Irwin, Lanier, Lee, Lowndes, Mc Intosh, Telfair, Thomas, Tift, Turner, Ware and Wilcox Counties. Chapter 1000 is in a unique position to help veterans across a broad area of South Georgia.

Our mission is simple:​​

"To foster an environment of brotherhood and camaraderie among combat wounded veterans, promote patriotism, and most importantly, provide service to all veterans and their families."

" Chapter 1000 in Fitzgerald, Georgia is to be commended for being the first Department of Georgia chapter to establish it's own website. Further, they are the first Department of Georgia chapter to have stepped into Twitter world of social media and have joined Chapter 576 in Alphretta, Georgia as the owners of Facebook pages. Now, I challenge the other chapters to reach the standard Chapter 1000 has set."
