Phil Kraft, our executive director and a Vietnam veteran, joined the Vietnam Veterans Agent Orange Victims organization as a family health counselor in 1989. Since then, Phil has devoted his time to serving his brother and sister veterans and their families.
He served on the Agent Orange Commission until 2000. Since 2001, he has taught classes on veterans’ benefits at the United Auto Workers’ Veterans Conference in Black Lake, Michigan.
He is past Post Commander of Darien Post 6933 Veterans of Foreign Wars, a former VFW State Veterans’ Services chairman, and past member of the National Veterans Care Committee at the VFW Washington Conference. He is chairman of the 2017 VFW State (CT) Homeless Veterans program.
“HonorBound is in the business of prevention,” says Phil. “It’s the little things that can keep a veteran and family together. We help veterans on the verge of homelessness or financial peril in time to preserve their family. We make sure their sacrifices do not adversely affect the very lives of those they were fighting to defend.”
