291 – Althea Williams – She Vets It

Althea Williams joined the U.S. Army at the age of 39 and spent her time in flight operations. She managed operations for Apache, Blackhawk, and Chinook helicopter units.

After an accident that led to her leaving the Army, Althea had to learn how to live again and find her voice. This led her to start She Vets Its. She Vets It is a way to connect other female Veterans with each other to support what they are doing.

283 – Amanda Coleman – Irish Angel

283 – Amanda Coleman – Irish Angel

I got a Facebook Message from Mike Damon, “The Godfather”, that I should meet Amanda Coleman who is known in Law Enforcement as “Irish Angel”.

Amanda is from Ireland so I reached out and she told me that she was coming to Boston maybe we could meet in person. I met her and her Boston-based team at Sam Walkers and had a good time talking with her Board members and supporters. I met people who worked in Law Enforcement that were just as committed to helping their fellow officers out as we Veterans are when it comes to PTSD and other issues. Amanda and I agreed to meet later that week to talk in person.

I wanted to talk about what Irish Angel was doing now. This organization has been advocating as a non-profit for a while now and I thought it was interesting that this woman from Ireland was here in the U.S.

Amanda talked about the need for more support for Law Enforcement, EMS, and First Responders. We talked about how military and law enforcement differed in that many times we in the military don’t go home at night when a shift is over. We are deployed away from home whereas law enforcement and first responders must work to not bring the job home daily. 

Currently, Irish Angel is working to gain more support to fund their programs. There is a lot of work underway which is why Amanda was in the U.S. I have made it clear in the past and now that I will always support those on the Thin Blue Line. I learned that change starts with one person.

Thank you for talking with me Amanda, and I am looking forward to supporting the work Irish Angel does on behalf of those who serve.

Irish Angel is growing and working to support those on the front lines.

Check out the following links to learn more and support the work.
