The NVF honors and remembers our former team member and counselor Christopher Hughes. Chris’s death by accident in late September is a shock to all of us. For over seven years he was Shad’s right hand man in the office, in addition to being a compassionate counselor on the Lifeline for Vets. We’ll remember him for his enthusiasm and willingness to help, but most of all, for his dedication to our mission and his service to our country. Our condolences go to his family for their loss.
