What inspires your efforts and your work to support Veterans and their families?
Ray Kokkonen: I am not sure if the word 'inspirational' or 'inspires' is the correct one. I feel it's more of a duty. I am a veteran myself even though I am not a client of Veterans Affairs Canada, but I know what it's like to be a veteran, I know what some veterans are going through. They have hard times, their families are having hard times and I feel obligated to work on their behalf to better their role and their place in life.
