"Action Tank is an important part of my life, and I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to serve my community with such a great group of people."

How did you learn about Action Tank? From one of Action Tank's founders, Randy Hsia.

What year did you join Action Tank? 2017

Why did you join Action Tank? Randy was, and is, a good friend of mine, so I initially I figured that if he was a part of it, it must be a good organization.  After I attended a few meetings and a service project, I learned Action Tank is a fantastic group of service minded military veterans doing great work in the community.  I knew I wanted to be a part of it.   

Share with us about the season of life you were in when you joined Action Tank and where are you now? When I joined Action Tank my children were in elementary school, and I was making a big change professionally moving from the public sector to the private sector.  My children are now about to enter high school, and I like to think that I have made a successful move to the private sector.
