SAN DIEGO, - PsychArmor Institute (PAI), a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) non-profit, is excited to announce its partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as outlined in a recently signed memorandum of understanding between the two organizations.
“We are so proud to partner with the ultimate Veteran’s organization,” said PAI founder and CEO, Marjorie Morrison. “Our organizations share a vision of providing best-in-class resources to America’s veterans and the community supporting them. Together, we will leverage our individual strengths to collaborate on enhancements to the VA’s community educational material. ”
