Dear USVCC Community,
All of us at the U.S. Veterans Chamber of Commerce (USVCC) will never forget the sacrifice of our first responders. It is also important to always remember those who served our country in response to the home front terrorist attack.
As the wife (at the time) of a New York City detective and the cousin of a New York City firefighter, my personal experience on September 11th was a day “I’ll never forget.”
Things were never the same again for my family. My cousin Scott Davidson and his entire crew from Engine 205-118 Truck perished trying to pull civilians out of the downtown Marriott.
Due to not understanding the effects of PTS, many marriages of surviving first responders ended in divorce. Mine was one of them.
Although part of my life ended that day, a new life and purpose was born. I began working with first responders, transitioning military, veterans, and their families. I learned the greatest thing in the world you can do is service for others. This is where I began my journey to form the USVCC.
My job is service to you – military, veterans, and their families to ensure you receive the best programs and services under our five pillars: Business, Employment, Education, Wellness, and Family.
We thank you for your service and we are here to support you.
God Bless America.
U.S. Veterans Chamber of Commerce
