Gallagher starts sponsor program for area veterans

“We are trying to serve as that bridge, that connective tissue, whereby a veteran from northeast Wisconsin is coming back home to Northeastern Wisconsin, we make that transition as easy as possible and we plug him or her into that veteran community,” said Gallagher.

Gallagher said his program is different because he is pairing veterans with other veterans.

“What I have seen is a lot of times veterans are unwilling to talk about their experience, but if it’s with a fellow vet, you kind of have that shared understanding, experience and language that allows you to open up a bit and it just creates a community of people that are more naturally suited to coming together,” said Gallagher.
