About the San Francisco Community Covenant
With one of the largest military and veteran communities in the country, the San Francisco Armed Forces Community Covenant is dedicated to reaching the thousands of men and women who need the support of the community before, during and after their military service. Servicemembers continue to deploy to Afghanistan leaving behind their families. Many of these servicemembers live in your communities as members of the National Guard or the Reserve. As Americans, we all have to come together to take care of veterans and the families left behind. The Community Covenant is an excellent forum for communities to show their support and get involved.
