ICYMI The Veterans Transition Center and new VBH HQ, located at 5260 Parkway Plaza Blvd, Suite 110, Charlotte, NC 28217, is now open. We are looking for volunteers to help greet, welcome, and interact all of our friends and fellow Veterans we expect to see in the new space. (Think of it as the duty desk, but at the nicest Air Force Base you can ever imagine.) If you would like to volunteer on a reoccurring basis, please let us know here.
STAT OF THE WEEK .2 million. The projected increase in the number of female veterans by 2046 source:
VETERAN SPOTLIGHT Mike Jarina enlisted in the Naval reserve while still in high school, and is a graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy. He spent 20 years flying on aircraft carriers and earned Navy wings of gold. Jarina retired as a Lieutenant Commander in 1989. "From my father, to my education to leaders both officer and enlisted I learned one consistent thing: take care of the troops". Mike now proudly serves as a volunteer with several organizations, including VBH, that take care of those in need.
