What military organizations do you belong to? I am a member of the Jewish War Veterans of the United States.
What brought you to QuestiMark? After graduating from college, I applied to QuestMark because of the company’s long history of providing quality products and craftsmanship - something I can stand behind and be proud of.
How can we - as individuals - best help veterans? It’s always bothered me to see homeless veterans in our country. I recommend donating or volunteering with organizations that assist and help rehabilitate the many homeless veterans in our country. These men and women often suffer from mental illnesses that are the result of combat situation. We owe them so much as a society and should do what we can to keep them off the streets and provide better mental healthcare.
From everyone at CentiMark and QuestMark, thank you Nathan Kitts for continuing to serve our country.
