George Sink, P.A. Injury Lawyers Salutes Military Families
George Sink himself is a military veteran, having served two tours in Vietnam as a Captain in the Marine Corps. Firsthand and through our clients, we witness the unique demands military families face on a regular basis. Risky endeavors, long stints away from home, and limited compensation can make life challenging. Without support and resources, some military families may put education on the back burner.
We believe current or past service or having a close family member in the military should not hinder young leaders from getting a quality education or pursuing their goals. It is our hope that our Veterans & Military Family Scholarship will help an aspiring student get a college education. We encourage all eligible students to apply.
