4TH Veterans Awards

 


It was on an early autumn morning in 2014, shortly after her honorable discharge from the United States Army that Assal Ravandi longed for a service oriented satisfaction equal to what she had experienced during her time as a soldier. "I need to do something," she thought to herself. "I need my sense of purpose back and to continue my service." In this enthusiastic state, Assal conceived the idea of The Veterans Awards (Vettys®); an accountability platform to recognize the positive aspects of the veterans community. Finally, on Veterans Day 2015, the Vettys® was produced for the first time ever and became the first community-wide event that celebrated various veterans projects under one roof.
