An OSD chapter provides a foundation in a local community through one or more of OSD’s 3 Pillars: Social Connection, Professional Development, and Servant Leadership. Chapters are made up of groups of active duty members, veterans, family members and civilian supporters devoted to giving back at the community level. Chapter are semi-autonomous all working independently, as well as in conjunction with each other in support of the worldwide OSD mission of supporting veterans. Chapters are self-reliant and come up with interesting and beneficial events that engage their chapter members, local veterans, local civilian supporters, and their local community as a whole. Chapters work closely with local businesses, organizations, and companies to help ensure continued growth and sustainability of OSD. Chapters also create active and engaged communities online through social media. Each Chapter is different, made up and directed by individuals, but supported by the resources and leadership of the OSD national office. This ensures that each chapter aligns with 'The OSD Way.’ An OSD Chapter is driven to gather and make an impact with events either by veterans, for veterans, or with veterans.
