Veteran of the Month
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 owner 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.
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. Under his leadership, VCC has become one of the fastest growing senior service companies in the United States.
VCC was named a St. Louis Small Business Monthly “Top 20” small business and has been named a finalist for the St. Louis Post Dispatch Top Workplace (2015-2019), St. Louis Business Journal Best Place to Work (2019), and the Arcus Awards (2014). To date, the team has served more than 10,000 clients in 45 states.
Kyle is a frequent speaker on the topic of 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 a wide variety of philanthropic efforts through monthly campaigns.
