Favorite Quote

“Every dollar goes back to setting up fundraisers, education, training, and introducing the veterans to companies. A lot of guys just lock themselves away. We get them out, talk to peers, and talk to companies that are legitimately interested. Put them in your group plan, IT WILL HELP!”
