Review for Alpha Omega Veterans Services, Inc., Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Alpha Omega Veterans Services, Inc. was founded in 1987 by a Memphis family who had two sons who were Vietnam veterans and they ended up living homeless on the city streets. Since 1988 Executive Director Cordell Walker said AOVS has helped more than 11,000 veterans sign up for their VA benefits, provide them with food, shelter, clothing and training to assisted them in becoming independent and productive citizen who overcame addiction, PTSD, or other issues connected to their military service. I volunteered in 2015 to help Cordell Walker and others to support this valuable mission. AOVS currently houses 140 veteran clients. Our motto is "Helping Veterans Help Themselves".

Review for Alpha Omega Veterans Services, Inc., Memphis, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first met Cordell Walker 3 years ago when he spoke at our church and told the story of Alpha Omega Veterans. Having served 16 years in the USNR, and 6 years in the Tennessee State Guard I knew I wanted to help veterans as a volunteer and that's how I got started. In 2017 I was elected to serve on the AOVS board and become part of a great community Team. It is a proud and rewarding thing to help our veterans who've suffered and need assistance to rebuild their lives and become a contributing member of our community again. Thank you all for your Military service. J. David W.
