Coalition in the News

Making the Coalition’s Case As Clear As Glass

I recently had the opportunity to accompany David Walker, the chairman of the Coalition’s board of directors, to the 2011 GlassBuild America convention in Atlanta GA. I knew very little about what these fine folks do, but I read a bit about the convention online and was aware that I’d be meeting business owners for door and window companies. What I didn’t know, however, was how gracious they would be, and how even during a slowdown of the economy, when some are struggling to make the next mortgage payment, they still stepped up to help provide a major component for construction of a wounded warrior’s home. They actually gave 80 windows that were specifically made of sound-deadening components – perfect for a soldier struggling to live with PTSD.
I was warmly welcomed to a luncheon event at the convention, and given the chance to showcase what the Coalition does for our wounded soldiers. I want everyone who came to the luncheon to know that I had a great time speaking to, and with, them and look forward to the next occasion to share our message and raise awareness about our organization.
