54 years ago, Korean interpreter Jack Allord’s ears provided him with information vital to our country. Today, his eyes have provided him the opportunity to reconnect with fellow veterans through the Wisconsin Council of the Blind and Visually Impaired.
The Veteran Low Vision Support Group gave Jack the tools that he needed to secure VA benefits, update his 20 year old visual aids, and create valuable relationships. “I’ve even met some veterans from World War II,” says Jack. “We all have different backgrounds and deal with different things, but I’ve learned a lot from talking to them.”
