About myself

Thursday, August 06, 2009 08:11 | Richard White
I was born and raised in Washington State. My wife and I have been married for 24 yrs as of today, we have three daughters and two grandsons. I enjoy gardening, camping, and anything outdoors to do with raising our own fryers, turkeys, pigs, laying hens, and did enjoy hiking. I joined the Army in August 1982, was honorably discharged in April 1986.

    Richard, a great story. Thank you for all that you do. I am a Mortgage Consultant with Wells Fargo Home Mortgage. We do more VA loans than any other lender out there. I love to put veterans into homes with no money down and also have refinanced many veterans into a Streamline VA Refinance where we lower their rate and have no appraisal or credit requirements.
    If you wish to contact me, I can be reached at or 360-574-0753.

    Thank you for your time and for becoming a learner

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.
