Building Partnerships between Communities and the Military

Yesterday I had the honor of meeting with U.S. Army Captain Glenn Cardozo, who is working to build strong partnerships between individual communities and the men and women of our armed forces. Through a mechanism known as Community Covenants, Captain Cardozo and his colleagues undertake projects to generate charitable funds, to improve or create housing, and to benefit youth. This is an innovative and productive program that yields tremendous benefits for a host community and at the same time demonstrates appreciation and support for those who serve our nation in uniform.

I encourage you to contact Captain Cardozo, with whom I am pictured below, to learn how your city, town or organization can benefit from a Community Covenant. He can be reached at or (781) 221-7855.
