What does it mean for veterans to help veterans? Here is a great example (and it can benefit your family).

One of the questions I am most often asked is, "Why do you still carry a military mindset after being out of the Army for nearly 20 years?"

My response: "The Army spent a lot of time, effort, and money teaching me how to put the uniform on and what to do while I wore it. They spent not one single second or penny teaching me how to take it off."

One of the lessons learned for many veterans is that of taking care of our brothers and sisters in arms. But what does that look like?

Mackenzie Verdi and Veteran Mortgage Solutions is an excellent example.     

Mackenzie is an Army veteran who spent almost seven years as a military police officer with the 101st MP Company and the 506th RCT BTB. His time included deployments to Baghdad, Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. He obtained the rank of Staff Sergeant. 

His entire life has been about service, so why should he change that? He shouldn't. And he hasn't. 

Not only does Veteran Mortgage Solutions exist to assist military and veteran home buyers, but they also hire veterans.

Here are just a few of the team members at VMS.

Geoff Ford served in the United States Marine Corps as a Sergeant in the Field Artillery.

Another Army veteran is Martin "Ty" Cobb who left the Army after almost 19 years. Sergeant First Class Cobb worked in Signal Support and Electronic Warfare.

Scott Bryson was in the United States Navy.

Chief Petty Officer Byron Brown was also enlisted in the Navy. 

Chris Fuller also served in the Navy in special operations doing search and rescue. 

So, what is it about veterans that makes them a great fit for VMS?

Dedication. Committment. Discipline. The willingness to go the extra mile to accomplish the mission. These are all intangibles that are embedded in the DNA of many of our nation's veterans. They serve selflessly.  

Additionally, so many veterans separate from the military and instantly miss the camaraderie and esprit de corps. They miss the community and the mission. They desperately want to feel like they are contributing to something bigger than any one individual. 

Being part of a group like VMS restores that sense of belonging.

To the veterans at Veteran Mortgage Solutions, and all our nation's veterans, thank you for your service to our great nation. You are loved and you are appreciated.
