Yesterday at NCVS, Wendy Spencer highlighted three national service programs during the closing plenary. One of those programs was Washington State-based Vet Corps.
Following that incredible moment, I wrote Jason Alves, Vet Corps’ director, to celebrate with him. Here’s his response:
We didn’t know she was going to mention us, but it has been exciting to see the twitter world and everything around it light up ever since.
We are doing well in large part because of America Learns, so thank you. You and your team have been extremely supportive and we really appreciate it.
