MEET OUR FOUNDER
Paul O’Daniel, Master Sargent, USAF Retired
My story is one of compassion and giving. Over my 24 year Air Force career, I had the privilege of being assigned to units whose primary mission was humanitarian assistance and disaster relief. Some of my missions include; Desert Shield/Desert Storm, Operation Restore Hope, Mogadishu Somalia, Operation Provide Comfort, Diyarbakir Turkey, Operation Provide Promise, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Operation Uphold Democracy, Haiti, Hurricane relief operations in Puerto Rico, Deployed in support of the initial Global War on Terror to numerous locations within Southeast Asia, Operation Unified Assistance, Tsunami relief, Indonesia, Joint Military Response to mudslide in Leyte Philippines, Russian submarine rescue of seven Russian submariners in Kamchatka Peninsula Russia, Operation Sea Angel II, Bangladesh, Hurricane relief operations in support of Hurricane Sandy and of course, operation Iraqi and Enduring Freedom, Iraq and Afghanistan.
During these missions I realized I gained more personal satisfaction in giving than receiving. I retired in 2013 and since then I have been active within the Veterans Affairs, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Sacramento Superior Court/Veteran Treatment Division, as well as volunteer at the Mather VA Regional Medical Center.
I have been very fortunate and blessed in my post military life and would like to pass it on to my veteran brothers, sisters and their families. No one deserves to be homeless, especially those who have put the safety, freedom and liberty of others before themselves.
