Los Angeles, CA, September 07, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- As the Syrian situation quickly develops into a military operation with potential significant long term implications and possible requirements of ground forces, Operation Veterans Promise (ovpstaff1.wix.com/opveterans-promise) (OVP) envisions a new installment of those who will have borne the burden to earn the title of Veteran. With this new engagement undoubtedly there will be an increased demand for veteran services and assistance, OVP, wanting to establish a stronger position, dug deeper to expand its communication networks and connection to more Veterans in many of the country’s major cities.
“Developing sound reliable networks are a cornerstone to successful non-profit development,” remarked Operation Veteran’s Promise CEO Michael Angielski. Deploying a significant tool in the effort to increase outreach, expand networks and overall impact, Operation Veterans Promise reached out to the Clear Channel Radio (http://www.clearchannel.com/Pages/Home.aspx) network and their family of associated Broadcasters. “Their response was tremendous,” said Angielski. Over the holiday weekend, while most celebrated the holiday and many contemplated the impact of the pending military engagement, Operation Veteran’s Promise looked to the near future. “We need to consider the implications of pending military operations on veterans issues post conflict,” Angielski added.
While Congress debates and challenges the issues of what happens in Syria and how military actions may transition into post action/conflict operations, OVP (http://ovpstaff1.wix.com/opveterans-promise) ponders what will happen to a new generation of veterans should ground forces become a necessity. Many refer to Iraq and Afghanistan, to which the administration challenges the comparison; yet counter with comparisons of Granada, Panama, and Tripoli. “It must not go unmentioned that two out of three of those counter arguments were actions involving ground forces and comparatively the only successful engagements of the three,” reminded Angielski. Even when Kosovo is entered into the discussion, it must be said that which was initially touted as an engagement of nothing more than “standoff” military systems, the aftermath involved a significant number of international ground forces with many of them American Service Personnel.
“We need to stay ahead of the curve, Clear Channel Radio and its affiliates will be significant collaborators in this effort,” stated Angielski. Clear Channel Radio representatives from across the country responded to the call. Clear Channel Radio members (such as: Dick Lewis, President, Greater New Orleans; John Quinlan, Vice President Sales, Laguna Niguel, California; Chris Soechtig, Senior Vice President, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Florida Area; Heidi West, Co-Host of Worcester's Morning Show, Worcester, Massachusetts; Clifton McSwain, Producer/PT On-Air Personality, Greater New York City Area; Jeb Freedman, Program, Director & Afternoon Personality (KTCL), Greater Denver Area; Erica (Hayden) America, LMHC, On-Air at Z100 NY, New York, New York; Randy Slack, Cincinnati Area; Krissy Taylor, Cleveland/Akron, Ohio Area) and over 300 other members and stations of the Clear Channel Radio family helped Operation Veteran's Promise surges past the 8,300 member milestone in the LinkedIn community alone, adding their voices to advance the cause to support Veterans. Their commitment and loyal support makes the mission possible. Operation Veteran’s Promise eagerly encourages other members of the Clear Channel Radio Network to join the effort and champion the cause of Veterans. “We are honored by and thankful for Clear Channel Radio's recognition and support, OVP looks forward to future collaborations to broaden awareness of OVP’s mission and improve the quality of life of many of the Nations Veterans both now and in the future.”
