  1. Jim,

    Thank you so much for providing me the opportunity to speak at your wonderful event! The EBV program at the Whitman School of Management has been a fantastic resource to help me launch and run my businesses. It is a tremendous resource for disabled veterans to help empower them to be self sustaining and to provide jobs to other disabled veterans and family members. For each job a veteran starts…it usually ends up helping out four other veterans or family members. When the jobless rate for returning veterans is reaching 30% (fox news Nov 2011), programs like EBV are crucial for providing them with the tools to create jobs and take care of their families. Thank you again so much for your support!

    v/r,
    Christine Gentry
