A Veteran's Story: John Manganu

by David Jin

John Manganu is one of our long-term homeless volunteers who's been working with us since last year. Since the program restarted a month ago, John has been coming in each week and working with us. John is a veteran from the Navy and had two honorable discharges after getting injured in the field. John said his experience serving in the Navy was incredible and "definitely a very fun experience." In fact, John was part of the crew to serve on the first coed submarine commissioned by the Navy. Unfortunately, following his discharge John was unable to use the benefits provided by the Navy for his service. He's currently trying to activate his benefits and move into permanent housing. Feel free to come out to the Our City Forest nursery at 1000 Spring Street on Saturdays 9-12 to chat with John!
