SEATTLE, WA – October 30, 2014 — One Mind has been recognized by Starbucks, HBO and Chase, co-sponsors of THE CONCERT FOR VALOR, for outstanding service and support of veterans and their families.

As part of the event, One Mind will be one of 16 veteran service organizations (VSOs) highlighted for outstanding service and support of veterans and their families. An advisory committee led by Co-Chairs Admiral Mike Mullen and Secretary Robert Gates and comprised of thought leaders and passionate supporters of VSOs was assembled to make these selections.

Additional committee members include executives at Starbucks, HBO, JP Morgan Chase, and the Schultz Family Foundation.

"One Mind is honored to be recognized as one of the highlighted VSOs among the thousands of incredible organizations that serve post-9/11 Veterans and their families,” said One Mind CEO General Pete Chiarelli (Retired). “What Starbucks, HBO and Chase have created in order to provide an opportunity for our country to come together and show gratitude for the sacrifices Veterans and their families have made is truly admirable.
