In an effort to reduce the number of suicides among former military personnel, this veteran social network provides an online community and support system. POS REP enables army vets to connect after leaving service so they can support each others' reintegration. This is particularly important given troubling statistics from the Pentagon indicating the leading cause of death in 2012 and 2013 for American military members was suicide, not war.

The veteran social network takes the form of a mobile app. The Radar feature helps users find veterans and resources in their area. SitRep provides a community forum. Squads help users maintain communications with their fireteam, flight or department. The POS REP app also offers SRB and chat features.
