I work very hard and am attending college to obtain my degree in the Human Service field. Writing makes me feel alive and gives me the opportunity to touch those whom I would not be able to otherwise. Last but not least, I have been blessed with two amazing daughters who love me completely and support my dreams. Feel free to contact me with questions, concerns or feedback.
I receive emails at school occasionally. My VA guy at UWM had sent me an invite to a special preview of the movie Lone Survivor with Mark Wahlberg. Needless to say, at the end of the movie, I was so choked up I couldn't stand. After pulling myself together, I went home and cried some more. It was that good. I had attempted to find another Veteran to attend, to no avail.
I had received an email from a gentlemen informing me of a volunteer opportunity. He mentioned being a part of Milwaukee Homeless Veterans Services located in the bottom floor of St. John's Lutheran Church at 5500 W Greenfield Ave in West Allis. I decided to go for it and realized that there is a reason for everything.
