Who We Are
This past year has been a harsh lesson for today’s society. We lost people, were forced into a state of survival, and were isolated from the daily warmth, laughter, and community so many of us took for granted.
Today we celebrate the strength found within ourselves and each other to persevere and help others.
Patriot’s Promise was founded in 2012 by John R. Baskin Sr. As a former Army Captain/Helicopter Pilot and Desert Storm Veteran, John felt a strong calling to give back and honor unrecognized heroes. His father, Colonel/Reverend Ronald R. Baskin served in both the Korean and Vietnam War before retiring after 33 years of decorated service.
Colonel Baskin dedicated the rest of his life serving the church as well as countless homeless, broken, and forgotten soldiers at VA Hospitals all around the US. Colonel Baskin passed away in 2010 at the age of 84 and was a true inspiration in John’s life.
At Patriot’s Promise we believe “Streets are for cars, not veterans.”
