On Day 20 of my 22 Day, 22 Pushup Challenge, I spent time with Michael Blecker, Vietnam Veteran and Executive Director of Swords to Plowshares at one of their permanent supportive housing sites, Veterans Commons. Founded by veterans over 40 years ago, Swords to Plowshares provides a full range of wrap-around services, including housing, employment and training, and legal and health care assistance to roughly 3,000 veterans in the SF Bay Area each year. They also advocate on behalf of veterans and provide community education to first responders, employers and others who engage with veterans. Thank you to organizations like Swords to Plowshares and individuals like Dr. Michael Blecker who are on the frontlines of supporting and providing care to veterans and their families.
