Honoring Terrance Holliday for Helping NYC VeteransThursday, March 7th, 2013
Our feature stories this week include a profile of a longtime friend of Veterans Advantage – New York City Commissioner of Veterans Affairs (and former Air Force Colonel) Terrance Holliday. You see, he was actually a friend long before I knew it – when he first joined our program 10 years ago in 2003!
But over the years, we have gotten to know each other and share a mutual admiration for our respective missions. Terry is a tireless advocate for Veterans causes, and he always makes a point of being accessible to those in need. Just this week, I had the privilege of presenting our “TopVet” award to Terry at an outstanding African American History month event in New York, a salute to African Americans in the Military, organized by his Deputy, Clarice Joynes and the MOVA Staff. We honor and recognize him today for his military service, his achievements in government service and for his dedication to service above self.
