A Truly Extraordinary Event: "Welcoming Her Home Gala."

This was a truly amazing and humbling experience. The amazing people at the Minnesota Assistance Council for Veterans (MACV) asked me if I could emcee their event, Welcoming Her Home Gala, on September 6th.  Suffice it to say that I was completely thrilled. 

 

The purpose of the Gala was to focus a light on the fact that an enormous amount of woman have served in the Armed Forces and deserve to be recognized. Woman are in fact the fastest growing segment among America's veterans and according the the Department of Veterans Affairs, over 2.2 million have served in the military. In fact, the Department of Defense says woman account for nearly 15 percent of today's active duty military force. By 2040. woman veterans will be 18 percent of the entire veteran population. 

 

This Gala also focused on Veteran homelessness and specifically female veteran homelessness.  As President and CEO of MAC-V Maj. General Neal Loidolt put it, if we can't stop female veteran homelessness in Minnesota, we will never stop homelessness of any kind. 

 

This was a truly amazing event and I was absolutely thrilled to play a small role.  We raised a lot of money for a great cause and I was thankful to contribute in my own small way.
