Celebrating Archie Kelley's 100th Birthday

This week I had the distinct privilege to wish a U.S. Navy hero, Archie Kelley a happy 100th birthday. Captain Kelley served on the USS West Virginia during Pearl Harbor after graduating from the U.S. Naval Academy. 
During the attack on Pearl Harbor, the USS West Virginia was hit by seven torpedoes. While Captain Kelley was on board he successfully helped save the ship from sinking after being hit. His brave actions saved the lives of many servicemen. 
Olivia and I joined Archie Kelley, along with all of his friends for a birthday celebration to reflect on the vast accomplishments and honors Captain Kelley has earned in his 100 years.

Corporate Council Round Table

This week I joined a round table discussion with Corporate Council to discuss veterans affairs and how to help support veterans in their job search. Arizona is home to many veterans that are looking for jobs after honorably serving their country, and this group does a great job of helping them succeed in finding work.
