Our Mission: We bring together Kentuckiana’s largest veteran employee lead groups from the area’s prominent businesses to better the lives of veterans in the community by working towards resolving two of the greatest challenges facing veterans today: unemployment and fulfilling mental & physical health needs.
This year, Rally Point: Kentuckiana's initiative will benefit two military charities:
Active Heros, a 501c3 military veteran suicide prevention organization that helps both the mental and physical health needs of veterans and their families.
USO-Fort Campbell/Nashville, The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation.
Presented by UPS, Ford Motor Co (KTP), UAW Local 862 and GE Appliances
Our Veteran/Military/Spouse Resource Fair is the largest such Fair in Kentuckiana and it provides employment opportunities and other valuable services for you and your family members in Kentuckiana. We know that families serve alongside of our service members! Plus, the first 100 Veteran/Military entrants receive a "Swag Bag"!

Be the Difference
In 2015, several Kentuckiana businesses, led by veteran affinity groups within these companies, came together to create a coalition called Rally Point: Kentuckiana. The mission of this now 501.C.3 charity is to find ways to enhance or improve the lives of those who serve or have served our nation within the Kentuckiana area.
In its inaugural year, Rally Point: Kentuckiana and its partners raised an amazing $40,000 net to benefit its military charity causes. This year, Rally Point: Kentuckiana has a goal to double that amount and make our activities some of the most anticipated events of the year to benefit our military. Rally Point: Kentuckiana would like to thank all of our sponsors who helped make this event possible in 2016:
UPS; Brown-Forman; Humana; Ford Motor Company - KTP; UAW Local 862; JUMP; The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts; L&N Federal Credit Union; Texas Roadhouse; WAVE-3; Louisville Magazine; DO502; Clark and Riggs Printing; WLKY-TV; Summit Media; Business First; Masterson’s; Hyatt Regency Louisville; LEO Weekly; Jack Daniel’s; American Commercial Lines; AARP Kentucky; Nationwide Services; Churchill Downs; Steel Technologies; U.S. World Meds; Sullivan University; GE Appliances, a Haier Company; Mint Julep Tours; Whirlpool; Papa John’s Pizza; Lowe’s; VFW; IATSE Local 17; Al Ondreka
In 2017 we ask you to be the difference for our Veteran’s. We need your help to make this year’s events stand out and bring our community together creating one more resource for the men and women who give so much to us.
