The Next Objective is a veteran-run non-profit organization (501c3 approved) dedicated to empowering our returning service members by way of an established veteran network that will focus on fitness, community, and team-centric events to achieve success and happiness in life outside the military.


1. Individual gym memberships.
2. Personal/group training sessions.
3. Team-centric event participation such as mud runs, urban endurance exercises, backpacking retreats, etc.

We have experienced firsthand the positive impact that training for and then participating in these types of events has on the individual psyche of a veteran. Completion of these military-style team challenges works to reinstate diminished confidence and repair an eroded sense of camaraderie and belonging. In the end this serves to empower veterans to realize that we don’t need charity, we just need opportunity…and each other.

The MMFF is a community-supported fund founded in November 2004. Contributions are made by people who understand that there are many sacrifices that military families make and want to help soften the financial hardships that may occur, especially when a family member is deployed, by providing a financial safety net.

The men and women that serve in our military have given up their freedom to protect the freedom of American citizens and to proactively pursue people who have attacked or plan to attack America and Americans. Contributing to the Minnesota Military Family Foundation is how many of your fellow citizens show their thanks and support to our troops and their families. The Minnesota Military Family Foundation is an all volunteer board with zero overhead.
