MBA/MPA student and Army veteran Lindsey Melki praises Christine Quinn's plan to assist veterans
August 30, 2013
Excerpt from The New York Times -- "Ms. Quinn was standing beside a woman who had faced much more harrowing situations – Lindsey Melki, an Army veteran who flew a Black Hawk helicopter in Iraq in 2007 and 2008 – to announce what she would do as mayor in her first 100 days in office to help veterans. 'We have not done enough — the Bloomberg administration has not done enough," Ms. Quinn, a Democrat, said. Among her proposals was creating a 'welcome home' center in Times Square that would offer counseling, medical, job and housing services for veterans, as well as satellite support centers in each borough. Ms. Melki praised the idea of having a 'one-stop shop' to help veterans navigate the services available to them."
