On September 11, 2001, terrorists attacked America killing and injuring thousands.
We became a nation at war.
A few heard America's call.
Although only 18 or 19 years old, they knew they would go into harm's way.
They did, losing friends, deploying themselves and leading with imperfect information in high stress situations.
In so doing, they became heroes to me.
Now, in their early thirties, they have completed their military obligations, have their own families and desire to continue to serve something larger than self.
They asked me to help, and together we formed Honor Capital to create Honor Villages that combine fresh food with affordable housing.
Honor Capital, a Veteran owned business, has eight members; six are post 9/11 Veterans.
As the "old Navy goat" from the Vietnam era, it is an honor to work with them and share my business experiences from the past forty years.
Please help us create Honor Villages across America.
Jim Allen, President
