As a social worker and the wife of a Marine veteran, the work of #JoiningForces is incredibly personal to me. That's why since coming to the White House almost two years ago, some of my favorite moments have been joining the First Lady and Dr. Biden as they met with service members, veterans, and their families. No matter where we go, we always see vets and military families giving back to their communities. New Orleans is no different. We're headed there today because the city joined the First Lady's call to mayors to end veteran homelessness, and a network of veterans, service members, and their families stepped up immediately to help. #HonoringVets -Rory

We know the work is not over. There are still many veterans and families who are struggling with injuries like traumatic brain injury who may not be homeless right now, but need community and supportive housing to thrive."

—Dylan Tête

Working in New Orleans, Dylan founded Bastion Community of Resilience to help his fellow #Vets find homes. Dylan has spent nearly his entire career helping build supportive communities. During a combat tour in Iraq as second-in-command of an Infantry company, Dylan established multiple recovery projects in collaboration with the State Department. In 2005, he moved to New Orleans to manage the construction of several FEMA housing facilities after Hurricane Katrina. He then went on to join Military.com to assist transitioning military personnel and wounded warriors begin new careers in the civilian workforce. Today, in his role with Bastion, Dylan is working alongside the city to help house homeless veterans. It's folks like Dylan who are making sure that everyone who has served America has a home in America.

The First Lady just took the stage to celebrate New Orleans becoming the first city to successfully end veteran homelessness! We knew it would take a lot of hard work when the First Lady called on mayors to end veteran homelessness in 2014, but today, communities across the country are #HonoringVets by getting to zero just like NOLA.
