Candid and thorough feedback. DJ was able to articulate all of his experience in a way that was not only thought provoking but also enlightening. Great mentor.

DJ's sound counsel was beyond reproach. He genuinely cares and wants the best for all transitioning vets. He shared his personal failures and success with authenticity. Moreover, he provided guidance and sequential steps delineating the pathway to a successful transition to the civilian sector. I am blessed to partner with this mentor who believes in making positive impacts in people's lives. I will pay forward this kindness.
