Don is a co-founder, along with his late wife Deborah, of MilServ ACD. She asked Don to get involved and he was happy to join the mission. He is thrilled to be a co-founder of a company that is so focused on giving back to veterans and their families because he is constantly looking for ways to help and support his fellow veterans.
Don comes from many generations of military men and women. He is a veteran with 36+ years with the USAF (United States Air Force) and ANG (Air National Guard) and still serves today. Don started his career as a mechanic on aircraft, but when the BRAC (Base Realignment and Closure) took away the aircraft, he retrained in the Intelligence career field. Through all of this, his passion has been getting the opportunity to manage and mentor many people from all walks of life, all over the world.
Although Don works full time, as an operations manager, he prefers spending his off time with his two beautiful daughters and their dog Touk. When they are not spending time as a family, Don enjoys scuba diving, he even likes to teach the occasional scuba lesson, being a certified dive instructor himself.
Although his military career might be coming to a close, he looks forward to the new opportunities he will have to continue to make an impact in the veteran community.
His love for entrepreneurship started as a child working for his parent’s businesses. He didn’t know it at the time, but it was where the seed for his entrepreneurial journey started to grow.
Over the last 20+ years, his life has been focused on four main pillars: family, business, the Army, and school. During this time, he has been blessed with three children, has worked with several small businesses, retired with 20 years in the Army/National Guard, and attained three business degrees (associates/bachelors/MBA).
Now that his Army career is over, he likes to (jokingly) assume that his days of calling in artillery and air strikes on targets are over too. His ideal day now is waking up early, working on the business, taking a break to do something active outside with the family, then back to working or catching a Bruins game on TV.
Over the next 20 years he plans on working in high level business growth and giving back as much as possible, especially to his veteran community.
We are current and former military veterans and their families. Our lives and business are built on a foundation of service and devotion to a greater good.
