They provide education opportunities for Veterans and their families through a scholarship fund established at the University of Kansas and the University of Missouri-Kansas City. They assist Veterans transition into the civilian workforce through networking and employment opportunities.

The Fallen Outdoors mission is to organize outdoor adventures for veterans past and present, from every generation, and from all branches of the military. Their aim is to connect Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, and Marines with like-minded individuals along with teaching them a skill and passion they can continue for a lifetime. Team Missouri has trips ranging from bow fishing, snagging spoonbill, fishing, waterfowl, upland birds, dove, deer, turkey, kayaking, camping, and many other get-togethers. Last year they conducted 88 trips as a team and got 612 veterans out on trips. They also do volunteer river cleanups on the Pomme de Terre river and help local landowners out along that area. They have one track chair available for trips. Veterans can become members of The Fallen Outdoors free of charge and then they are eligible to register for events. Participants are chosen typically by a lottery drawing among those who register for the event.
Every year, more than 250,000 active duty service members transition out of the military, joining the 3.5 million post-9/11 veterans already living in communities nationwide.
