Build & Learn considers helping veterans as a critical part of our goals, mission and purpose. We hope to add the necessary staff members in order to become effective advocates. No one is more aware of the unfair, disgraceful and un-American treatment our veterans receive than our staff. We are veterans who have been dealing with the Veterans Administration and all of its unbelievable poor services for decades. I cannot expect to have success with this encumbered bureaucracy trying to do it on my own. I want to rally the community to provide various types of assistance for my fellow comrades though training, housing, healthcare and spiritual wellness. Our goal is to overcome barriers that hinder our veterans from completely transitioning when they come home. By the way, Build & Learn’s secretary from day one has been Sergeant Phyllis Kinnard who has served in the army (active duty) for over twenty years and continues to serve in the Reserves. We understand first-hand the veterans we serve and their many challenges. We are extremely grateful for our new partnership with the Maury County Veterans Office. James Patterson is the County Service Officer. We welcome others to join our efforts to protect those who have offered their lives for America.
Quinton Jones, Executive Director
