Honoring Our Volunteers:
The Heroes Behind the Scenes
2020-2021 Independence for Veterans
Volunteer of the Year Award Goes to. . .
A personal quote from Harriette J. Doll
“I first spoke with Stacia McDonough 5 years ago after reading a captivating newspaper article about her passion and devotion helping homeless veterans in the name of her deceased husband, John, a Vietnam veteran, USAF. My phone call started with, “I want to help.” It was sparked by my desire to help fellow veterans in honor of my husband Joe, who served as an Army combat infantryman in Vietnam from May 1970 – April 1971, working off of Firebase Mary Ann near Chu Lai in Quang Tin Province. His exposure to Agent Orange greatly affected his health over the years, ultimately resulting in the need for a heart transplant in 2014.
Since my initial contact with Stacia, Joe and I have committed ourselves to helping Independence for Veterans, Inc. meet the needs, and improve the lives of our homeless veterans. It’s a phenomenal charity, that is set apart from the others because we are very “hands on,” on a one-to-one, first name basis with these brave veterans,” Harriette states.
