I'm in a very good and unique position to speak to the effectiveness and even the constuction of the organization. I, having about 20 years experience finding my way through and holding positions in many Veteran Service Organizations and now being Adjutant for the Military Order of the Purple Heart Pittsburgh Chapter 455 at the Highland Drive Facility met the Founder Frederick Johnson when Heroes Today was in it's infancy. Mr. Johnsons openess, attitude, patience and understanding seem to come through and give personality to Heroes Today. It's a very effective organization considering the charter date. His willingness, Mr. Johnsons, to work and seek information from all other points of view are refreshing. This can only drive the machine thats grown to help so many veterans, active duty personel and their families alike. I'm big when it comes to helping Homeless Veterans and Heroes Today and it's volunteers are second to none when it comes to supporting those the best way possible. I and Chapter 455 look forward to working with Heroes Today in the future. I'm also happy to report our MOPH Chapter, Chapter 455 at our last meeting of March 31, 2010 voted to support the Veterans Appreciation Dinner on May 1, 2010 with $100.00 to make sure as many as possible homeless veterans are served a wonderful meal (non-hospital food) and have an enlightening experience. It's in the mail.
