William E. Bryant is a veteran of the United States Marine Corps and currently works as a Care Coordination Specialist for IJF's Care Coordination Center at the Chicago Lighthouse of the Blind. Bryant joined the Marine Corps right after graduating high school in 1982. He planned a long military career, but two years in, disease struck. His vision too impaired to serve; he was medically—and honorably—discharged.
William has been assisting fellow veterans who are in need through the Care Coordination Center for approximately 3 1/2 years.
