It provides competent supplemental professional and technical support to our communities for readiness and response during times of emergency. Drawing on the fraternal nature, dedication to purpose, and leadership skills inherent in a military and service-oriented community, the U.S. VRC provides a source of trained and ready volunteers eager to assist when needed.
