Terry Smith joins Operation Homefront’s National Board of Directors

SAN ANTONIO, TexasOperation Homefront, the national nonprofit celebrating 20 years of serving America’s military families, has appointed Terry Smith to its national board of directors.

“I am thrilled to have Terry join our very talented board of directors,” said Brig Gen (ret) John I.

“Terry brings significant executive leadership along with dedication and passion for our military families to our Board, incredible assets for Operation Homefront, and, as a son of a wounded military veteran, he understands the challenges that our veterans face,” said Angelo Lombardi, chair of Operation Homefront’s board of directors. “I’m excited to work alongside him as we endeavor to secure stable futures for our military families for generations to come.”

“I’m incredibly honored and humbled to join the board leadership team supporting Operation Homefront,” said Terry Smith. “I’ve been so fortunate to witness first-hand the positive impact this organization has made for the military community over the years, and am looking forward to personally further contribute as we continue to focus on the common goal of addressing the ongoing needs of veterans and their families.”
