Giving Thanks: A Year of Gratitude for Supporting Veterans and Their Families


As we approach the season of gratitude and reflection, I find myself overwhelmed with a deep sense of appreciation for the opportunity to make a positive impact in the lives of our veterans and their families. This year has been a remarkable journey, and I'm honored to share the experiences and inspirations that led me to this path, fueled by the legacy of my own father, Jim Gaspero, a Vietnam Veteran drafted in the 60s.

My Father's Service:

My story begins with the immense pride and respect I hold for my Dad, Jim Gaspero. He is not just a father but also a Vietnam Veteran who was drafted during the turbulent times of the 1960s. His service and sacrifice have always been a source of inspiration for me. Growing up, I heard his stories, witnessed the challenges he faced upon returning, and saw the indomitable spirit that carried him through it all.

The Inspiration:

My father's experiences, like those of many other veterans, left a lasting impact on our family. His journey sparked a passion within me to support veterans and their families. I witnessed firsthand the struggles they often face when transitioning back to civilian life, from healthcare to housing, and everything in between. This was a call to action, and I knew I had to find a way to make a difference.

The Path to Helping Veterans and Their Families:

With a deep sense of purpose and a mission in mind, I embarked on a journey to support veterans and their families in a meaningful way. The path I chose was in the world of real estate, a profession that allowed me to assist veterans in finding their dream homes and selling their existing properties. It was not just about houses; it was about providing a stable and secure foundation for those who had served our country.

Gratitude for a Year of Impact:

As I look back on the year that has passed, I am filled with immense gratitude for the opportunity to serve and support nine incredible veterans and their families. These nine transactions represented over 25% of my business for this year. Each transaction was not just a business deal; it was a chance to give back and say, "Thank you for your service." These veterans came from diverse backgrounds, with unique needs and dreams, and it was an honor to play a small part in their journey.


In this season of giving thanks, I am deeply grateful for the experiences, the inspiration from my dad, and the opportunity to support our veterans and their families. Their service and sacrifices are immeasurable, and it is our duty to ensure they receive the support they need in return. My journey, inspired by my father, Jim Gaspero, has been a rewarding one, and I am committed to continuing this mission.

As we move forward, let us remember that our gratitude should not be confined to a single season but should be a year-round commitment to those who have served our nation. To all the veterans and their families, thank you for your service, and to my dad, thank you for inspiring me to make a difference.
