George, a member of VVA Detroit Chapter 9 since the early 1980’s and later a very active board member has contributed immeasurablyto his fellow veterans and the community at large. He was a major contributor towards the 1985 VVA 2nd National Convention hosted by Chapter 9. George religiously supported the Chapter’s homeless veteran outreach programs, parades, Detroit Police appreciation luncheons, and overseas military personnel in the form of dry socks which were greatly valued by those serving in the hot Middle East. His real estate background helped tremendously in the negotiations and sale of “LZ Motown.”
