Motivational Mondays: Conversations with Leaders

Feb 15, 2021

After being deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan as a scout-sniper, Jake returned home from the Marine Corps in search of a new mission. 

What began as 8 friends providing aid to earthquake survivors in Haiti, grew into 130,000 volunteers across the United States—and a chance for veterans to find life’s second calling.
