On Monday night, Forever Warriors donated $5,000 to the Fort Walton Beach High School JROTC program during the Okaloosa County School Board meeting.

  • Forever Warriors is a nonprofit funded by Step One Automotive Group to support past, present and future U.S. service members, and is led by Air Force veteran Tiffany Orner.

“I served about 20 years ago, but when I served, the Air Force was well into 600,000 members strong. Now, just 300,000. And that’s just our Air Force,” said Orner, a third-generation military member and second-generation female Air Force veteran.

After meeting with the high school’s JROTC team a few months ago and learning about their work, Orner said she asked what support they needed. Funding was one need that stood out.

The donation aligns with Forever Warriors’ mission to aid military mental health, transition and sustainment, and community immersion programs.

  • “I’m not here to revert the wheel. I’m here to add value to the systems and programs already in place and support America’s next military,” Orner said.

“I want to thank you guys for your commitment to potentially being America’s next set of military members,” said Orner to the students and leaders at the meeting.
