Point Man Antelope Valley is an Outpost of Point Man International Ministries, a non-denominational, evangelistic, mission-oriented, faith ministry committed to facilitating healing and restoration of the spiritual, emotional and physical needs of veterans and their families.

Weekly veteran to veteran meetings allows military veterans of all ages to meet in a safe environment to share stories and help each other heal. Weekly meetings are held on Tuesdays at 6:00 pm at the Antelope Valley College Board Room. All veterans are welcome.

Point Man Antelope Valley is also the guardian of The Mobile Vietnam Memorial Wall, a half-scale replica of the Washington, D.C., memorial.

Staffed by volunteers from the Antelope Valley (hence the nickname “AV Wall”), the wall travels to Southern California cities to educate citizens and honor Vietnam veterans.
