Veteran of the Month


Earl Williams

VCC is proud to announce that Earl Williams is the “client of the month” for April 2015.

Earl enlisted in the Army on Dec. 8, 1954. He was initially stationed in Germany, but subsequently served in France for the remainder of his military career.

As an Army engineer, Earl worked on just about every piece of equipment, including bulldozers, trucks and pumps stations, to name just a few.

Earl was released in November 1956 and moved back to his home state of Pennsylvania. He worked in maintenance, as well as at rock quarry where he cut rock for sidewalks and masonry work. It was in Pennsylvania that he met his wife. The couple will celebrate their 61 wedding anniversary in June 2015.

Through the years, the couple has also lived in Missouri and Florida. They ultimately returned to Missouri to retire, as well as be close to their six children, 17 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren. In his spare time, Earl enjoys hunting and fishing. He also likes renovating homes. In fact, each of the homes he and his wife have purchased they have remodeled together.

About Kyle Laramie, Founder & CEO

Kyle founded Veterans Care Coordination in April 2011. As its founder and CEO of VCC, Kyle is driven by the memory of his grandfather, a World War II Veteran who unnecessarily missed out on essential VA benefits because Kyle’s family wasn’t aware of available opportunities. In recognition of his impact in leadership, Kyle was named to the St. Louis Business Journal’s prestigious “40 Under 40” list and St. Louis Small Business Monthly’s “100 St. Louisans to Know” in 2014. VCC was named a St. Louis Small Business Monthly “Top 20” small business and a finalist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch Top Workplace (2015-2022), St. Louis Business Journal Best Place to Work (2019 & 2022), and the Arcus Awards (2014). The team has served more than 14,000 Veteran clients and their families. Kyle frequently speaks on Veterans’ benefits, addressing conferences such as the Home Care Association of America and Decision Health. He is passionate about giving back and has built a charitable-minded organization that supports various philanthropic efforts.
