WAKE FOREST — David Robinson, a counsel at Nexsen Pruet in Raleigh was named the 2014 Flag Day volunteer of the year by the Veterans Leadership Council of North Carolina – CARES.
In recognition of the honor, he was presented the Flag Patch Plaque – so-called because it contains a real U.S. Army Flag shoulder patch worn in combat in Iraq.
The annual award was given in recognition of Mr. Robinson’s “Resolute leadership and distinguished service to The Veterans Life Center and the cause of homeless and at-risk veterans.”
In presenting the award, VLCNC Executive Director John Turner said, “Mr. Robinson was the indispensable man in our efforts to secure a HUD Community Development Block Grant for the town of Butner, so we could build the largest home and treatment center for homeless veterans in North Carolina.”
The Veterans Leadership Council of North Carolina – CARES was formed in 2009 to fight homelessness, suicide and other serious problems faced by veterans in North Carolina.
