The Returning Veterans of Diablo Valley basketball team was created in 2015 in an effort to bring together local returning veterans for a common purpose and to engage in physical activity with one another. As a result of the generous support of our sponsor, Vietnam Veterans of Diablo Valley and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1525 in Lafayette, CA, we were able to obtain team jerseys and all of our team fees were paid resulting in a $2000+ donation.  This activity has helped the returning veteran community to cultivate meaningful friendships, get physically active, and engage with their community.
