BIO

Roy has dedicated himself and his life to ending homelessness among veterans and helping them regain their lives and helping past and present members of the Armed Forces and their families, through his work with the charity and through volunteer and advocacy work. He assisted in the creation of Palm Beach County's Veterans Court, continues to be actively involved with it and oversees the court's Volunteer Mentor Program.
