Congratulations to Jas Boothe as she joins the the Department of Veterans Affairs, Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), on July 1, 2013 as the new Women Veterans Outreach Coordinator.
Jas is the founding president of Final Salute, a Joining Forces Mentoring Plus Community/Resources Partner. Final Salute has been successfully assisting Northern Virginia and Columbus, OH homeless women veterans and their families with support services and transitional housing. Part of the process is helping the woman veteran develop and establish a plan for her future success.
Jas served in the military for 13 years, having to end her career sooner than she wanted because treatments for cancer meant she couldn’t be the soldier she wanted to be.
The VA is working to better assist women veterans in need of support services of all kinds and adding Jas to their team is certainly step in the right direction.
BPW Foundation salutes you Jas!
