Message from the Chair/Founder

It is truly my privilege to be able to give back and make a positive difference in the lives of our Service Members, Homeless Veterans, Veterans, and their Family members. Through both my military and corporate careers, I have been afforded the opportunity meet and work extraordinary individuals. These experiences coupled with life experiences, have enabled me to build the relationship, network, and knowledge capital that I depend upon every day to give back.

My Dad served 33 years in the Army (Korea, Vietnam, others), after retirement assume the position of Adjacent for the Military Order of Purple (MOPH) and later the Commander of 423rd MOPH. My Mom volunteered as a Gray Lady, Army Community Service Volunteer, Colorado Cares – Foster Care and many other Charities. Between my Mom and Dad, they volunteer over 90 hours a week for their Community (both Military and non-Military and their Families) and were recently honored as Fountain, CO volunteers of the year. One of my brothers served 30 years in the Army (Vietnam, others), came back from retirement and now works as a government civilian with the 4th ID, currently deployed to Iraq. My other brother served 30 years in USMC, my sister is a nurse at Ft. Campbell, and my other sister volunteers with MOPH and an animal placement and care organization. We all realize just how fortunate we are and how many others sacrifice every single day for our way of life. Why give back? Perhaps we should ask ourselves, why not give back of our time, talents and energies to make a positive difference.
