December 12 - Sentinels of Freedom & 2020 Installation of Officers by Joseph Rubay
Mike Conklin, Sentinels of Freedom, San Ramon
Mike Conklin is the Chairman and CEO of Sentinels of Freedom (SOF). He was a successful builder and real estate developer in San Ramon, California, before founding the non-profit organization in 2007. He is the proud father of three Army Rangers and was inspired to establish SOF after one of his sons was wounded in Iraq. Impressed by the level of care his son received in military hospitals, and deeply concerned over the tremendous physical and emotional hurdles they faced upon re-entering society, Mike began the work that would evolve into SOF. The program assists severely wounded post-9/11 veterans as they complete their higher education and successfully transition to civilian life. The support they receive is uniquely tailored to the individual and includes: housing and living subsidies, financial coaching, mentoring, and employment assistance. Mike’s vision has been honored by military and community leaders ranging from California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to Secretary of Defense Robert Gates. He was awarded the Department of the Army’s Outstanding Civilian Service Medal, and he became one of CNN’s “CNN Heroes” for everyday people changing the world.
