Introducing Operation Renovation's Spokesperson

He worked as an Assaultman 0351, and on his last deployment he had to opportunity to become a Chief Instructor for Assaults Course at Division School, as an infantry NCO for Border Mentor Team 1.   When asked why he is so passionate about this project, volunteer official spokesperson and decorated combat hero, Ryan Yahner, said: “I have always been passionate about helping my fellow service members. I was a Sergeant with the Marines for 3 years, and my number one job was to take care of my junior Marines. Now that I’m retired, this project is a way for me to get back into that roll. A home is more than a just roof over our heads - it can be a sanctuary for service members, especially combat veterans. Unfortunately many can’t afford to keep up with repairs, especially when injury requires special modifications. REIG has been helping wounded warriors for several years now, and this project is another way they are showing their gratitude for our service members the best way they know how - through a home renovation. I am proud to volunteer my time for this cause and help my fellow service members again.”
