Remi comtinues to bring smiles to faces of all vets. Without him my anxiety and PTSD would render me useless to communicate with people or even leave the house. With him I am comfortabe enough to talk to other vets and help them. So much so that I was able to get a position with the Dept of NY VFW as the DSO. Everyday I am able to help veterans and without remi I would not be able to. If I get stressed he is known for his Remi Hugs and is always there when someone needs him.
Why do you do it?
I am not positive what this question is asking. I do my job because there was a time where I needed help and was spiraling and if it was not for a veterans organization I would not be here today. I then led my life paying it forward and in my job I am not able to help Veterans everyday. Why did I pick Remi? Who wouldnt. Remi is a loyal companion and he makes each step of my journey a little easier knowing I have him next to me gives me more confidence.
