Episodes 25 & 26 of Service Before Self

“I believe that serving our country is one of the greatest experiences you can have as an American, and I’m better for it. It gave me a sense of service to my country, but also service to my community.”  

– Jennifer Grubb, combat veteran, veteran advocate, registered nurse, wife, and mother

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services  podcast, Service Before Self, features conversations with leaders, practitioners, and advocates who are making a difference in the lives of veterans and their families. Recently, we interviewed Jennifer Grubb (Episode #25) and Danielle Applegate (Episode #26), two veterans who are on the frontlines ensuring the military-connected community receive the services and support to address their evolving needs.  They are also tireless advocates ensuring that veterans have a voice and are heard by legislators in Congress and by our larger society.

Though what makes these episodes unique, is that both Jennifer and Danielle share their personal stories of how overcoming adversity made them more resilient and committed to a life of service in support of our veterans and their families. Jennifer and Danielle do not hold anything back, and their stories highlight the importance of providing support to military families and veterans as they transition to civilian life.

Dixon Center is proud to share these inspiring stories of transformation, growth, service, and commitment. We encourage you to listen to Episodes 25 and 26 of the Service Before Self podcast to learn more about Jennifer Grubb and Danielle Applegate’s remarkable journeys.
