Vets Supported By Vets
Organized by: John Wadsworth
My Grandfather served in WWII, My Dad was a West Point grad and served in Korea and Vietnam, I graduated from Norwich a military college and served 7 years in the Army, My two sons served in Iraq, one as a Medic and the other a Military Police with the National Guard. One of my sons had a second tour in Kuwait and is still in as a Recruiter for the National Guard. As you can see our family believes in serving. I cannot help but hear on the news daily how we are letting our past and current Vets fall through the cracks. That needs to change. My commitment with this initial Donation is to start a Corporation that will be self sustaining and provide services to businesses nationwide. We will set up an office and employ several Vets immediately. My goal is to have at least 80% of our employees be Vets. We also will setup an organization in all major cities to help Vets get back on their feet. That may entail paying for education/retraining, counseling that the military doesn't provide, setting up something similar to Habitat for Humanity to build houses for Vets or rehab existing ones to fit the needs of the disabled. I have reserved the website www.vetssupportedbyvets.org. MY goal would be to develop that website. I have also submitted paperwork to the Minnesota Secretary of State to set this up as a Non-Profit Corporation.
