Roya Gordon, a former Intelligence Specialist for the U.S. Navy, is just one example of the veterans you support by entering for the chance to play paintball on a team of Navy SEALs, hang with Jon Stewart, and more!
Gordon spent six years in service and completed one term in the Middle East but after returning home she missed the camaraderie of the military and was looking for a way to use her acquired skills in her South Florida community.
“I am not looking for easy volunteer work, I am looking to use the skills that the United States Navy gave me and apply them to helping fellow civilians,” she explained. “It was an honor serving my country, and now it will be an honor serving my community.”
She learned about The Mission Continues shortly after returning home and applied for a fellowship to volunteer at Breakthrough Miami, a local non-profit that provides an academic enrichment program for underserved youth in Miami-Dade County. After completing the fellowship, Gordon intends to complete her undergraduate degree in International Relations and pursue a career in government or the defense industry.
