We are excited to have a good friend of ours and Good Success Mastermind member, Ken Lacy of Veteran’s Path Up! Ken started his Navy career in the Engineering Department on a Nuclear Submarine over a four year period. He followed this with 3 years of Security duty and then becoming an EOD-Explosive Ordnance Diver. He switched to the reserves and become a hard hat diver which then enabled him to become a Commercial Diver on the civilian side at the Norfolk Naval Shipyard. He was injured on a dive job and during his rehabilitation, received his Bachelors in Business Management. He went on to retire from the Navy reserves with a combined 26 years of service. In August of 2014, he began working with the Veterans Administration, and many non-profits within the community to place at risk and homeless veterans into properties. He is a member of the “Housing our Heroes” team to end veteran homelessness in Charlotte. In order to maximize his ability to help more Veterans under the umbrella of a 501(c)3, he created Veterans Path Up. He established a board of directors and is now working to serve those honorably discharged veterans that want a path to home ownership. Through the network of a great team, Veterans Path Up is helping veterans build their credit while living in stable homes. This, in turn, gets them on the path to home ownership.
