Project Description

Megan was in the US Navy and spent most of her time on the aircraft carrier USS Kitty Hawk.  She did pre- and post-flight inspections on F-18s and was proud to be one of the few women on deck.  Stationed in Japan, she spent most of her time out at sea.  This earned her the medal for the Global War on Terrorism with her support of operations OEF (Operation Enduring Freedom) and OIF (Operation Iraqi Freedom).

Unfortunately her grandmother, who helped raise her, fell ill.  Megan returned home to help care for her, but like many veterans, she struggled with readjusting to civilian life.  After making some bad decisions, Megan fought to get life back on track.  She worked to support her daughter and finish school so she could start a career with the VA to assist other veterans dealing with the same struggles she encountered.

Songs4Soldiers was able to assist by eliminating some of the financial stress Megan was under by paying some of her monthly expenses.
