Alpha Company Veterans Group is a nonprofit, tax exempt organization with the Internal Revenue Service. Our vision is to be able to support veterans who are in need: housing, counseling, benefits, employment and job training. Alpha Company First Battalion 111″’ 28″‘ Infantry is headquartered in Northeast Philadelphia on South Hampton Road. In 2005, Alpha Company was deployed to Iraq, the war took its toll, and six men from Alpha Company were killed. Hence, Alpha
Company Veterans Group was named after the infantry to honor those brave soldiers.
“We hope you can attend and share with us as we recognize the lives that have served our great country.
We are proud to be Americans! The soldiers that have given of themselves are our heroes.” ~ Dr. Larry King, President.
