The Battle Buddy JPC met and completed the Draft Battle Buddy Program Statement the week of February 22nd.
The properly formatted Program Statement should be out in the next couple of weeks for 30-day review. PLEASE, review this and provide input, we have NEVER had a policy (program) like this to help our veterans before.
Also, I would like to thank Shane Fausey, President Allenwood (Veteran) and Ed Canales, President Dublin (Veteran) who helped me with writing this important policy.
The week went well discussing on both sides how important this policy (Program) is and the difficulties with proper implementation of this program in the field. Shane discussed his positive outcomes and accomplishments in the NE region.
Shane Fausey with the assistance of others set up and conducted one-day seminars for Veterans in his area, which has proven to be beneficial. Since the first seminar Shane and his team have put together and presented several more seminars for our veterans throughout the North East Region.
With the Agencies full support, Shane Fausey will be training all Program Managers to implement and mirror his program nationwide to better assist our veterans in the field.
