Ronald Paul Rideaux Jr.
Retired Army Veteran / Founder of The Barracks
I am a retired Army Veteran. I was born 20 July 1977 in Lake Charles, Louisiana. I enlisted in the U.S. Army 16 Feb 1997. I completed Basic Combat Training and Advanced Individual Training in May, 1997, at Fort Benning, Ga, becoming an Infantryman. I have had four military deployments. I was medically retired from the United States Army April 2018. This experience of brotherhood has been the most rewarding experience of my life. I look forward to continuing to help my community by building the social media platform for our Veterans and Service members.
The Barracks has been an established LLC since March 2021 and I have been very passionate about this phenomenal project. I feel without a doubt that with adequate attention, this project will be life changing for our military community.
The Barracks will be a social media
audio and visual platform where veterans, active, national guard and reserve service members can gather as a community to address and voice concerns, barriers, accomplishments, and goals. There is a strong correlation between social media use and social connectedness.
The purpose of the Barracks is to provide positive resources for service members active and retired by giving them a trusted platform with a mature audience to engage socially about day-to-day needs.
The Barracks will allow Veterans and service members around the globe to communicate, share ideas, network, build friendships, share their stories, feel supported, and most importantly have hands on resources to combat all obstacles.
The Barracks will provide a community that understands the barriers and stigma that Veterans and service members face when it comes to mental health and treatment. The Barracks will allow a safe, convenient, enjoyable, advantageous, and easily accessible platform for Veterans and service members.
The Barracks will be the first of its kind social networking app. The Barracks will provide a feeling of fellowship, camaraderie, and friendship as we work to develop our community. This platform will create a peaceful coexistence. We will thrive to meet people where they are while displaying the utmost respect.
