Today’s #VeteranOfTheDay is Marine Corps Veteran David Casperson. David served in the Iraq War.
David served for 10 years on Active Duty. He served as a part of SOCCENT at Camp As Sayliyah in Qatar.
Upon returning home David decided to follow his American Dream. He is now the owner of SpecHops Brewing Co. Opened in 2010, this brewery aims to capture the stories of all of the public servants that it comes in contact with such as teachers, police officers, firefighters, and of course, Military Veterans. He also runs his own intelligence unit supporting the fight against terrorism.
Do you want to light up the face of a special Veteran? Have you been wondering how to tell your Veteran they are special to you? You’re in luck! VA’s #VeteranOfTheDay social media feature is an opportunity to highlight your Veteran and his/her service.
It’s easy to nominate a Veteran. All it takes is an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with as much information as you can put together, along with some good photos. Visit our blog post about nominating to learn how to create the best submission.
Veterans History Project
This #VeteranOfTheDay profile was created with interviews submitted to the Veterans History Project. The project collects, preserves, and makes accessible the personal accounts of American war Veterans so that future generations may hear directly from Veterans and better understand the realities of war.
