Four VA employees named to HillVets 100 list


HillVets released their list for HillVets 100 2017 this morning that included Secretary of Veterans Affairs Dr. David Shulkin, Senior White House Adviser Jake Leinenkugel,  Relationship Manager Theodore Wong of the Veterans Experience Office and Vantage Point’s own Timothy Lawson, host of VA’s Borne the Battle podcast.

“The purpose of the HillVets 100 is to bring together the broad Veteran community,” said HillVets Founder Justin Brown. “We do this by highlighting the many incredible individuals in it and their meaningful contributions across many disciplines.”

Honorees recognized by HillVets are typically influential Veterans, service members and supporters that have a positive impact on Veterans and the Veteran community.
