This is part 1 of a 2-part series on moon shots; how to structure your team and organization to achieve the unattainable. Over the next two blogs we will examine what it takes to set audacious goals, the steps needed to break them down into actionable metrics, and how you can execute them to indeed achieve the unattainable.
I am a hard man but I wept as I compiled these stories.

Below you will find a small sample of Veterans who received support via WAF, many thought all hope was lost.
Missions/objectives of high importance must be pursued no matter the probability of success, and without fear of failure. Our mission is of high importance. I have received a lot of feed back on our decision to announce the termination of the Warrior Angels Foundation (W.A.F) prior to 2020.
