What a great opportunity to attend the 2018 conference! I took a week vacation from my full-time job and paid out of pocket to attend and learn more about how we can best support our Veterans.
What I learned… our services are so needed! Reps from across the country would love to work with us, so much of the government funding is so restricted and limited, so many people were hoping we would be national. Also learned that we should remain privately funded – allowing the flexibility to support so many Veterans without the red tape and bureaucracy.
It was great to run into a HS classmate supporting our Veterans in Maine!
