Military Mission In Action | MMIA
THIS IS OUR STORY
Early one morning on Hunting Island State Park on the southeastern tip of South Carolina, Mike Dorman had a vision. The sun was coming up on the horizon, the waves were breaking on the shoreline and Michael, who had retired from the United States Coast Guard after 20 years of service, was in deep thought about his life.
“I was thinking about growing up in North Carolina, my career in the Coast Guard and my time spent as a contractor after the Coast Guard, and I felt the need to do more with my life,” says Dorman who grew up in North Carolina. He was thinking about his fellow veterans, those injured while serving their country; veterans with disabilities who needed everyday assistance.
“I was becoming more aware of the high number of returning veterans suffering from disabilities and knew a need existed to have their homes modified so they can live independently. I was also aware that a large number of veterans are just now suffering disabilities from the Vietnam War and that age was becoming a disability for Korean and World War II veterans.”
Those thoughts early that morning led Mike Dorman to make major changes in his life to start Military Missions in Action in January 2008, devoting his efforts to help veterans with disabilities achieve independent living as well as supporting our service men and women serving in combat areas and their families.
“I also wanted to honor our fallen heroes like my grandfather and support our men and women currently serving in the armed forces,” says Mike. “It does not matter whether you are young or old, rich or poor, Republican or Democrat; it is our duty and responsibility to support those who sacrificed so much for our freedom.”
The Jim Allen Group is so excited to support our troops overseas with care boxes for the brave service men & women currently stationed abroad. We are honored that we could take part in showing our appreciation for those who serve our county! It is amazing what we can do for others when we all join together.

…Today I received a large number of care packages from your company and our Soldiers were overwhelmed with your support and encouragement. We are located on a very small base in a very remote part of Afghanistan and we currently do not have access to many of the necessities we so easily take for granted at home. Your support has made a world of difference to Soldiers who serve our nation. Many don’t receive care packages do to various situations and it’s nice to be able to give them something to help remind them of home. I cannot say enough about how your generosity makes a difference. From the Soldiers of the 3rd Infantry Division of Fort Stewart, GA. We salute you. THANK YOU.”
