Land and Maritime associates band together
Defense Logistics Agency Land and Maritime Contracting Supervisor Nicole Banks poses with Jim Stewart, a homeless Vietnam veteran, in late July when he received a 2007 Honda Element to replace the 1996 Pontiac he’d lived out of for years. The older vehicle has no working air conditioner, so Banks began campaign to raise money to replace it. The pair originally met in early July, when she saw him in the parking lot of her local grocery store. The two shared a connection when they discovered each had previously served in the Marine Corps. Moved by Stewart’s plight, Banks has worked diligently with a growing network of friends and strangers to help get Stewart off the streets.
