The mission of ROVER (Regional Outreach Veterans Engagement Resources) is to connect Veterans and their families to resources and access opportunities to improve their quality of life.
We use the phrase Adaptive Veteran™. It’s our term for a Veteran that was wounded, ill, or injured. We focus on the fact that the Veteran is moving forward after their injuries; They are not defined by their injuries.
ROVER was founded in 2015 by combat-wounded, medically retired United States Army officer James Macrellis.
Having served at various command and staff positions, he served 24 years in both the enlisted and officer ranks, primarily in special operations positions and units.
He was wounded during a second tour in 2005-2006 and then again in 2009 during his third tour in Afghanistan. He has suffered multiple physical injuries and TBI's.
We're here to serve you, our Veterans, and your Family!
