From Veterans, To Veterans: John Sanaxay

From Veterans, To Veterans: John Sanaxay

 CareerSource Pinellas would like to recognize John Sanaxay for his 4 years of service as Petty Officer 3rd Class Boatswain Mate in the U.S. Navy.  We thank you for your selflessness and dedication to this country. Now, John has been a part of our Disabled Veterans Outreach Program (DVOP) team for 4 years and works effortlessly to connect veterans with our services.

One day, he was working with this veteran who was struggling with drug addiction. Because of the drug program he was in, he wasn’t allowed to own or operate a vehicle.  Seeing how this really inhibited him from getting around and applying for jobs, John reached out to the local police department which was able to donate a bike for this veteran to use.  The veteran was so thankful for the bike and was able to find a job on his own without relying on public transportation.  Seeing this man achieve something on his own reminded John of why he chose this job in the first place.

Thank you, John, for everything you do for this company.  Your passion to better your fellow veterans inspires us all.
