The Soldiers Project
December 13, 2012

I'm a Veteran and volunteer for The Soldiers Project in New York. This is an incredible organization with very passionate people who have the experience in the Mental Health field to truly help us veterans out. I volunteer back when I was attending school and using my GI BIll and knew I wanted to get into the field of counseling to help my fellow veterans. Dr. Broder is an incredible lady, very passionate and honest and because of her leadership, this organization has flourished into such a great organization. I volunteered with The Soldiers Project by putting them on Facebook, I was the creator of their Facebook page. Once I shared the idea with Dr. Broder and the NY Chapter, they were ecstatic about it and they were so thankful to me for becoming a volunteer. As a Veteran Employment Counselor, I make sure to mention The Soldiers project to any Vets who request the help, and I really cannot be any happier to support this organization. So yes, as a Veteran, the Founder of a Non-Profit myself, a certified counselor and a Veterans Employment counselor, I highly recommend us Veterans of today take advantage of getting help from the members of The Soldiers Project. This is a group we can turn to for help if the VA is not what we want. To Dr. Broder and all members, continue to do this great work, us veterans need it. Thank You. -Steve

Military Child Education Coalition
September 21, 2010

I have purchased the "Working With Military Children (For School professionals)" book which I find fantastic. I'm currently in my last year in a Masters program, where I'm studying School Counseling. My goal is to become a school guidance counselor, and to also be a resource especially for military children since I'm a veteran as well. I have spoken about this book to the school I'm interning at and also have brought it into college to conduct presentations, since it pertains to my field of study. Not many people know about this information and just wanted to say, I will always have this in my office when I graduate and become a guidance counselor. I'm also more than welcome to help get the word out by having a link to MCEC at Transitioning Veteran.com and also by sharing it with my, over 2000 fans on facebook. Keep up the great work and look forward to new information to share with others in the field. -Steve
