MIAMI, April 17, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Two of America's leading veteran advocates, Kevin Humes and Frank Campanaro, have joined forces to launch VetPower.org, a nonprofit charity that gives America's veteran population the opportunity to start their own home-based and franchised businesses. Kevin and Frank are Service Disabled Veterans who have been honored with numerous awards on and off the battlefield for unwavering dedication to Country and fellow soldiers.
VetPower.org provides veterans with the resources, training, networking, mentorship, and support needed for new business success. This begins with a self-administered assessment of the Veterans interests, abilities and financial needs, supplying them with the foundation for personal decisions related to available opportunities. www.vetpower.org
Kevin Humes' legislative endeavors to support and empower veterans over the past two decades have put him and his Veteran Service Organizations front and center. Mr. Humes advocates directly with the Secretary of Veteran Affairs, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, the Department of Defense and the Department of Labor, along with many of America's largest veteran organizations. Kevin's ongoing leadership in the support, retraining and successful transitioning of our veteran population continues to be recognized and lauded by all involved in the process.
Frank Campanaro is a Service Disabled U.S. Army Ranger. In 1993 he employed the skills and passion gained from his military service into a highly successful entrepreneurial career with a focus on veteran training and reemployment. Frank currently serves as the CEO of Trillacorpe Construction which is ranked #23 in Inc. Magazine's 2011 "Inc. 500 Annual Ranking of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies." Some of Frank's other honors include the 75th Ranger Regiment Association "2010 Ranger of the Year" Award, and the 2009 American Legion Award for "Veteran Employer of the Year – Michigan Midsized Companies".
"We are reaching out and encouraging all Americans to help our heroes who, in many instances, have given up their careers and livelihoods to fight for our freedom. We all owe them more than a mere thank you," stated Kevin Humes.
Frank Campanaro concluded, "Returning vets are not looking for a handout but rather an opportunity to utilize their in-service training, their skillsets, and their God-given talents to successfully transition into the business world. VetPower.org offers businesses and private citizens the ability to become an integral part of this critical mission."
