“Jerry is an accomplished veteran and IT professional,” said Jim Lorraine, president and CEO of America’s Warrior Partnership. “His leadership has driven successful team efforts everywhere from the VA to NASA, and his voice will be a tremendous addition to our board of directors.”

America’s Warrior Partnership’s Community Integration model is active in nine communities across the country and has served more than 38,000 veterans in three years. This model empowers communities through training, mentorship and structure to conduct proactive outreach to veterans by connecting existing resources and providing tools to create stronger collaboration among existing veteran service providers, bridging gaps in service wherever they may exist. The result is a more coordinated approach that holistically serves each veteran’s individual needs, ensuring no one slips through the cracks or does not receive essential support services.
