I'm the executive director of GallantFew, Inc. and turn 60 years old in 2021. To raise awareness for veteran issues, the great organizations across the country and help veterans AND to illustrate the benefits of maintaining physical health as we age, I'm cycling from Tacoma to Savannah.
GallantFew’s mission is to prevent veteran isolation by connecting new veterans with hometown veteran mentors, thereby facilitating a peaceful, successful transition from military service to a civilian life filled with hope and purpose.
We do this by creating and supporting a nationwide network of successfully transitioned veterans that engage locally with new veterans with the same military background now going through transition and by motivating communities all over the nation to take responsibility for veterans returning – welcoming, connecting, and including. We believe this will prevent veteran unemployment, homelessness and suicide.
