This week’s WorkingNation #WeeklyChangemaker is Garrett Cathcart, a U.S. Army veteran who serves as the executive director of the nonprofit Mission Roll Call and has made serving veterans his life’s work. In his role, Garrett helps Mission Roll Call lead the movement to provide veterans with a powerful and unified voice to reach national leaders and communities.
Right now, nearly half of veterans are unaffiliated with the Department of Veterans Affairs or any veteran-serving organization. Veterans lack a partner that proactively seeks their input on issues impacting their lives and effectively communicating their views to stakeholders.
To combat this struggle, Garrett and Mission Roll Call use the voice of the American veteran as a strong and impactful force for change. Mission Roll Call creates a community where veterans, their spouses, families, and caregivers can share their stories, concerns, hopes, wins and voice their issues.
In September, we had the pleasure of speaking with Garrett at the America’s Warrior Partnership Symposium about the importance of the event to veterans.
