D Hitchcock
Hometown: Kansas City, MO 
Name: Daniel Hitchcock
MOS: 12B ( Combat Engineer)
Time Served: 6 yrs Active Army (2006-2012)

Why I joined the Military: My grandfather served in WW2 and Korea. I always wanted to be like him. I recognized him as a role model. Once I graduated High School I decided to join the military. I wanted to challenge my idea of who I was and what I thought I had developed myself into. I wanted to do something that made me feel proud. Something that felt like I was making a positive difference. I wanted excitement, adventure, something that would be both physically and mentally challenging. I had found exactly where I wanted to be. I finally found a place where I fit in. I served two deployments 2007- 2009 and 2011

Why I Joined Handmade By Heroes: I heard about HBH through my readjustment counselor, I really needed a workplace that understood my disabilities and was willing to work with me and my schedule to getting better. It is hard to find work being a disabled veteran. A lot of companies don't have time to slow down and help a person with disabilities. Most companies don't know what working with a disabled veteran entails so they'd just rather not hire an "issue". Handmade by Heroes is here to help veterans get back on their feet and back into the workforce. Thank you HBH.
