Koch General Engineering Calling on the Community to Help Veterans

Share Article

Jeff Briggs, of Koch General Engineering, marks five years putting out PSAs to remind the community to support San Diego veterans.

We owe so much to our veterans, who often suffer physical and emotional trauma in their efforts to protect our country.

Jeff Briggs, co-owner of Koch General Engineering, is commemorating his fifth year of doing public service announcements on KCBQ Radio reminding people to support veterans by donating time, clothing, blood or funds. “It’s very important to support our veterans any way we can,” said Briggs. “We owe so much to our veterans, who often suffer physical and emotional trauma in their efforts to protect our country.”

In honor of his grandfather who was killed at the invasion of Normandy during WWII, Briggs pays to have a few different PSAs that are aired for about a week every year in April. This is also his way of showing support for the men and women who have given so much to keep America free, some of whom are now in dire need of assistance, as they are homeless or are at-risk for homelessness.

In fact, according to the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans, an estimated 39,471 veterans are homeless on any given night. Furthermore, two-thirds served our country for at least three years, one-third were stationed in a war zone, and approximately 1.4 million other veterans, meanwhile, are considered at-risk of homelessness due to poverty, lack of support networks and dismal living conditions in overcrowded or substandard housing.
