Samuel’s Story - Veterans

Samuel Gotti of the Department of Defense stands with arms spread smiling.

My cause is veterans. I've come across many service members, transitioning veterans, and my own soldiers, who suffered hardship and difficulty after leaving the service despite a strong work ethic and discipline. Samuel Gotti of the Department of Defense stands with arms spread smiling.

Seeing this firsthand was the primary factor that brought this cause to my attention. Most of my soldiers went through a period of adjustment after leaving the service. Their transition was marred by challenges and difficulties due to an ever widening disconnect from resources, and a clash of cultures. I have connected many of those who suffered invisible wounds with CFC-based organizations. Those resources bridged the adjustment gap and provided a lasting sense of security and pride in them and their families.
