Being a veteran I understand how hard it is to start over. Before I started my career and lasvegasrealestate.org I too found it hard to adapt to civilian life again. Thankfully I had a helping hand right before failing in my 2nd year and being on financial aid probation. That little help changed my life and I was able to stay in college and graduate with a degree in Chemistry minor in Business.
Now It’s My Turn to Help a Brother or Sister Vet
