I am retired U.S. Navy and served my country honorably for 24 years. Joining the Homes for Heroes® program allows me to support my sisters and brothers in and out of uniform as well as other Heroes who protect, teach, and care of our country every day. I have never had to lay my life on the line when I served but can appreciate how much our Hero’s go through on a daily basis to do what is right for our country. This is my way, a small and personal one, of giving back and letting them know that I appreciate each and every Hero I come into contact with. Additionally, who better to know how to deal with the stress of transitioning than someone who has been there and done that. I am here to help ease the burden so they can concentrate on more important things such as taking care of their family.
