    As an Iraq War veteran, I am honored to work at the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). We are home to more than 70,000 AmeriCorps members, whom we are celebrating as part of AmeriCorps Week.I work with these national service leaders and our other programs to find ways to support wounded warriors, veterans, and their families.

    During AmeriCorps Week, many officials will step forward to recognize the contributions our members are making in their communities and states from coast to coast. We've collected a few highlights from the leaders of our statehouses across the nation.

    For many AmeriCorps members, finishing a term of service is not an ending, but the beginning of a life dedicated to public service and improving the lives of others.More than 800,000 people – a number close to the population of San Francisco – have served in AmeriCorps since its inception in 1994. You don't have to look far to find achievements that highlight how AmeriCorps alumni have leveraged national service experience to become leaders in fields such as education, science, community development, and the private sector.
