About We Belong Network

WBN is the future
for our veterans.

We Belong Network is a Digital platform that seeks to serve our nation's veterans their friends and families. We provide Resources, Information, and Entertainment that is relevant to the Urban based veteran community.

Our Vision

WBN was created by Richard C. Best, our CEO, Co-Founder, and Vietnam Veteran. He recalls the times when it was difficult for him to assimilate back into mainstream society.

He realized that while there was a multitude of services available for veterans, it was an overwhelming task for him to navigate through it all. Therefore, he created WBN to be that digital platform.

In conjunction with Susan Watson Turner, an Associate Professor of Music Multimedia Theatre and Dance Department at Lehman College. He partnered
with Susan Watson Turner to create an entity in WBN that commits to training veterans, and families and friends in digital multimedia production.
