Introducing NAVSO as the Combined Arms Institute
Combined Arms is participating in a virtual Memorial Day parade hosted by Ancestry! You are invited to be a part of the program by submitting a video clip or photo offering a salute to those who have served or lost their lives in the American armed forces. Materials may be featured in the webstream on May 25th, 2020.
Today, on Military Spouse Appreciation Day, we want to recognize the significant contributions, support, and sacrifice of all of our military spouses. Combined Arms would like to highlight two military spouses in our network and recognize all of their efforts and accomplishments.
I’m Johanna Zollmann and I recently joined Combined Arms as the Social Services Manager. My role is to ensure that our clients are connected to quality community resources through use of our member organizations. I represent the client stakeholder within Combined Arms: advocating to ensure clients are able to access the resources they need, ensuring policies, procedures, and processes are efficient and effective as possible for our clients, and always seeking ways to ensure our veteran community is thriving in the Houston area.
Pacifica Sauer left high school at the age 17 to join the U.S. Navy. "Life was new and exciting, and I couldn't wait to be in it," she said. In February of 1996, Sauer left home for boot camp in Great Lakes, Illinois, ready for a big adventure. "It was challenging in the ways I expected it to be, and shocking in others. Service in the military is a proud family tradition. It was something I found worth doing."
At New Politics Leadership Academy, we know that politics is service and it’s central to how we solve the big challenges faced by our country. We also know that people who have served the country are our nation’s best change makers, and we need them in politics. That’s why we lower the barrier of entry for veterans and national service alumni interested in politics through training and network-building.
Hello Combined Arms Family & Supporters,
I’m Mike Hutchings and I recently joined Combined Arms as the Chief Development Officer. My role here is to promote and enable sustainable funding for Combined Arms, so that we can continue to support our member organizations, and connect veterans to the resources they need. I am honored and humbled to be working alongside such talented team members and outstanding member organizations, this truly is a phenomenal place to work.
