WOW! Been several months between updates. Sorry about that but it's been very busy around Able Forces which is a VERY good thing. Here's some quick updates with pictures to be included soon:
- Won a 62 FTE contract with Army ROTC Command and formed a 2nd company; Able Forces Professional Services (www.ableforce-ps.com), as our employee's didn't fit the profile of Able Forces. In one year we've gone from 2 employee's to 78; 77 are are Veterans, many are Wounded Warriors.
- We're working with Miryana Navarro-Monzo, the woman behind Welcome Home Garden, and the Burpee Seed Company to provide Veterans returning from Afghanistan and Iraq with a very special Welcome Home Seed Packet. Able Forces has already distributed over 1,000 packets that include carrot, radish, lettuce, squash, tomato and cucumber seeds, among other vegies. Seeds for zinnias and marigolds are also included in the packet.
- The National Veterans Center (www.nationalveteranscenter.org) is rocking. Nicholas Anderson, my Director is doing an outstanding job bringing job preparation training to our Veterans. We have our upcoming Open House on 10 May at the Center. You're all more than welcome to join us between 6:30PM and 9:00PM.
- I'm leaving next week for Ft. Carson to be there when my nephew returns from Afghanistan. I'll post pictures when I return. in the meantime, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWOQ21v9ePQ&feature=youtu.be to view a tribute video my daughter Shawna created that includes Tony.
