Hello my name is Clifford J. Crawford I am a Board Member, and I am married with two wonderful children. I am a disabled combat veteran who served 6 years in the Army National Guard and reached the rank of E-5. I served 1 deployment in Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom. During my civilian career I was employed by Puget Sound Naval Shipyard. I started as a painter helper and worked hard to graduate their apprenticeship program and entered management, where I managed multiple crews and completed many complex projects. After 10 years of federal employment my disabilities became too severe for me to continue serving my country. During this time, I decided to turn in an application for a service animal threw Service Peace Warriors. I recieved SPW Freedom in August 2018 and began volunteering shortly after.
