Invitation to read my blog and join in my adventure

Friday, February 10, 2012 08:44 | Donald Stukes
After many years of struggling with this economy, I frankly was very tired. And while us veterans and active duty military personnel are not perfect (some recent articles) overall my experience has been very positive. In going through the Learner's orientation, I found a new sense of purpose and re-energy! I invite those out there online with similar backgrounds and values to read my post and join me in this adventure by commenting your thoughts to my post. I look forward to reading your comments that share your bond with me as fellow veterans.

    Aloha Donald, I share your tiredness and your new sense of purpose and re-energy. I can see clearly we have complimentary values: respect, humility, caring, compassion and most of all, a love of others. Together we can change the world, one veteran at at time which changes the community, one community at a time. I would like to discuss how we can partner in a venture to inform others about the unique veteran opportunity we have found, it can benefit all of us. I will be in touch with some possibilities,

    Mr Stukes, welcome to the SWVBRC and Thank you for your service to our country.

    I feel your tiredness too; except mine is from working the night shift for the past 10 months. As always, there is light at the end of the tunnel... so we must continue to chug along.

    I am preparing to retire and going through a program called SkillBridge which as afforded me the opportunity to intern with the AARC. As a fellow veteran and learner, we can support each other on this journey. As Veterans, we cross the finish line together!

DOD Welcome home-small.jpg A welcoming home for our Troops.

Welcoming home our men and women doesn't end after the crowd disperses, it MUST continue on for the life of the Veteran! They've served us, now we will serve them with programs that work so they reintegrate into society.

We are a national public benefit nonprofit organization that educates American Communities about best practices to serve Veterans.  We honor their service by empowering Veterans to apply their training and skills to successfully transition to productive careers and enterprises.

We provide free vocational training 24/7 to all of our members through our website, in addition to local events.  We believe the tenet that American Communities are the ultimate beneficiaries when Veterans claim their benefits and invest in productive endeavors.

The SWVBRC enlists the support of members of local Communities like you to increase Veteran awareness of the value of obtaining a VA card and receiving earned benefits.

Sponsorships, donations, volunteers and support from communities like yours enable us to reach out to Veterans and empower them to transition back into successful, productive enterprises that ultimately benefit all Americans and support future generations.

The Internal Revenue Service has determined that Southwest Veterans' Business Resource Center, Inc. is an organization exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. A donation to SWVBRC, Inc. is deductible to the extent permitted under law.
