Project Description

V1L is newly formed, with a unique perspective and approach in coming alongside our veterans and their families.  V1L was co-founded by two pastors and disabled war veterans, Bryan Roy and Reg McCutcheon.  

Bryan, an 8-year Air Force Veteran, served in Iraq and Afghanistan and has completed a Master’s in Divinity in Chaplaincy and a Masters in Human Services Counseling. Reg is a graduate of the Valdosta State University Marriage and Family Therapy program, and is a retired Lieutenant Colonel of the US Air Force.  

Together we have over 40 years of military experience, and share a strong desire to actively engage in helping veterans and families overcome the inherent challenges military and post-deployment life. Our goal is to assist our heroes in discovering how to re-connect with their communities, and families again.  Our veterans have already sacrificed so much in their lives and our goal is to help, at no cost to the veteran.
