Richard Engelman (email@example.com) is the Executive Director. He is from a military family and has two nephews, one in the Navy and one in the Marines, who are actively serving.
Rich was stationed in Fort Campbell, KY for 4 months (he is is in the first row, middle, to the right of the guy in the glasses, holding the pole), where he served as a Platoon Guide. After that he went to Fort Sill, OK for AIT training for 3 months. He trained in 155 Howitzers. After this time he served in the Army Reserve Unit for the next 6 years.
Rich currently has a brother, who is a Chief Warrant Officer 3 in the Army Reserves, a nephew who is a Lt. Colonel on active duty in the Marines and another nephew in the Navy.
Rich has always had a passion for helping other veterans. He has since learned that many senior veterans cannot get enough needed benefits through the VA. So he decided to try to help as many veterans and first responders with the programs shown on the Programs page.
Rich decided to start a non-profit organization to help veterans and first responders, while also volunteering with existing veteran projects. He volunteers on a military committee and also works in conjunction with the American Legion.
