James S. Gladney and his wife Melissa M. Gladney are thrilled to support the launch of the BlueStar Senior Veterans Foundation.
ROCKVILLE, MD, UNITED STATES, March 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Blue Star Senior Veterans Foundation announced today that Jim Gladney and Missy Gladney have made the founding donation to establish its 501(c)3 public charity. The foundation was established to provide aging-at-home technology services to deserving senior veterans and their spouses or widows. Jim Gladney is the Chairman & CEO of Portfolio Solutions®, a wealth management firm headquartered in Troy, MI.
Rear Admiral Robert O. Wray, US Navy (Ret.) said, “James Gladney and Missy Gladney are both from proud military families and have been my close friends and business associates for over 30 years. Jim and I worked together over the past year to conceive the idea of creating this foundation to assist those senior veterans who are in need of senior tech services but couldn’t afford them. The Jim & Missy Gladney Charitable Fund provided a generous contribution to establish our foundation and have pledged their ongoing support. Without the assistance of James Gladney and Melissa Gladney, this great resource to help senior veterans and their families wouldn’t have been possible. On behalf of the Blue Star Senior Veterans Foundation, Blue Star Senior Tech and all veterans who have proudly served our country, we express our deepest gratitude to James S. Gladney & Missy Gladney and their family.”
James S. Gladney stated, “My father, Arthur James “Lee” Gladney, Sr. was a Marine who served for five years in WWII fighting in the Pacific Theatre. He was only 15 years old when he volunteered to enlist in the Marines just a few days after the attack on Pearl Harbor. He taught me the true meaning of Servant Leadership by his example of honor, courage, and commitment in the face of adversity. Though others called him a hero, he rarely spoke of his service and never used it as a tool for personal gain or professional advantage. He was humbly grateful to have had the opportunity to serve his country honorably as a proud Marine.”
Melissa M. Gladney said, “My father, Richard Frederick Albert served in the Air Force during the Korean War. He was a patriot who dedicated his life to the service of others. Our family includes a number of veterans and current active duty service members and we hope to honor them by this donation and our continued support of the Blue Star Senior Veterans Foundation.”
