Transition within an organization is natural. Many times internal moves are cause for trepidation. However, when the organization is as tight knit as ours, it a cause for celebration. With that in mind, effective 22 OCT 2017 Justin Carlisle (veteran of Kilo Co.) took over from me as Executive Director of 38VFR. Justin brings a wealth of knowledge and inexhaustible energy that will power the nonprofit in its next phase of development.
This comes as we as an organization have expanded greatly. Currently, we are a staff of 15 members who are all volunteers. We have also been able to connect with many new partners with whom we hope to have a long-term, mutually beneficial relationship that will have a positive impact on the lives of Veterans and their families. In the weeks to come, we will be slowly introducing you to each of these new team members via our Facebook page and adding them to our “Team” section of the website.
I have been honored to lead this organization over the last 2 years. I have watched it grow from an idea to a fully functioning 501c3 nonprofit organization that has helped a large number of our comrades in their time of need, organized multiple reunions, and built a large network with like-minded parties who have helped in our development along the way. I will continue on in the organization as the Operations Chief for the next fiscal year and look forward to this new role and the opportunities it brings.
Please join me in Congratulating Justin Carlisle in his new role and as always, we appreciate your support.
