Doug Pfeffer: Building A Non Profit To Help Veterans And Their Families

How this veteran is helping to build a non-profit with services to assist veterans and their families.

Doug Pfeffer entered military service 1990 when he enlisted in the United States Navy. In 1994, he transferred to the United States Army. After a 24-year career, he left the military but still felt that he had so much to give back to both his community, as well as the veterans who came before him, and those to follow. In 2013, he accepted a position as the Chief Operating Officer for RallyPoint/6, a non-profit focused on helping Veterans in the South Puget Sound Region of Washington state. In this capacity, he is able to continue serving veterans through employment assistance, career counseling, as well as several other vital areas of focus.
