His primary mission, as a third generation veteran himself, is to educate as many possible families that can be reached, make them aware of their eligibility of VA benefits, and help in whatever ways legally possible in obtaining those benefits.
A network of over 200 local adult senior communities and home health care agencies have utilized his training and educational workshops and together in their partnership of cooperation have secured the benefits for over 5500 veterans or their widows.
