Y R N a Hit at first ever Joint Veterans Advisory Board meeting

The Yellow Ribbon Network participated in first-ever Joint Veterans Advisory Board meeting between the offices of Congressmen Charlie Crist and Gus Bilirakis. 

Each office created Task Forces to tackle Veteran issues from suicide prevention and homelessness to the transition to civilian life culminating in each joint Task Force providing formal recommendations.

The meeting provided a hugely positive response to approaching veterans’ issues in Tampa Bay through a commitment to bipartisanship.  Please take a minute to read the story from the Tampa Bay Time on the JVAB meeting here:
