Joe and I shared some experiences and laughed together a great deal. He said he felt very comfortable talking with me which really empowered me. Being able to participate in the Vet event has inspired me to inquire about continuing to volunteer in regards to career coaching and adult education with the Nicholas House. My father is a Vietnam Veteran, his father was in WWII, and my other grandfather was in the Korean War so I am very passionate about helping veterans especially with which I have personally struggled. I appreciate Rabia and RentPath’s efforts to assist in such a great cause and I look forward to continuing to provide assistance to others."
