Recently I was invited by a friend from Facebook to capture an event at The Clayton Center, here in downtown Clayton. Initially I had no idea what the event would be about, but after a quick email I read that this was a continuing education course for realtors. I didn’t know what to expect, but I penned it on my calendar and locked in the date.
Fairway Independant Mortagae Company and the American Warrior Initiative absolutely blew me away with their knowledge of current issues facing Veterans in America. I wasn’t expecting this, but I was pleasantly surprised and immediately put at ease. As a US Navy Veteran, for me, the current state of Veterans Affairs are a high priority. I was just reading a story on WRAL about a Veteran who took his life in the Durham VA parking lot, I was in tears in my kitchen.
I can say this after capturing this course – Fairway cares. They care about Veterans and they’re attune to our unique circumstances and situations. U.S. Army Airborne Ranger and NY Times best selling Author Sean Parnell was the keynote speaker. Amazing man, very respectful, super nice and personable; plus he was kind enough to accommodate a local photographer who he had just met 15 minutes prior!
It was a real honor catpturing this event, and I’m thankful I had the opportunity. Thank you, please comment, share and enjoy!
