Josephine Herrick Project has served veterans since 1941 and now veteran Brett Morash, Ph.D. has been elected to its Board of Directors. Dr. Morash is Vice President of Veterans Services at Services for the Underserved and a retired U.S. Naval Officer. His enthusiasm, expertise, and insight will help JHP scale veteran programs to a national level. His valuable military knowledge will also be applied to the thousands of never-before- seen photographs taken over the last seventy-four years in the JHP archives, in an effort to share them with the public.
“This is an exciting opportunity to continue to impact the lives of others in a pragmatic way through the use of photography as the catharsis,” said Dr. Morash.
Services for the Underserved www.sus.org is a New York City based nonprofit and for over 37 years has helped the underserved create pathways to a rich and productive life.
Graduating in 1993 from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy in Marine Transportation, he serviced in the Arabian Gulf, the Horn of Africa, Mombasa Kenya, and at the United States Mission to the United Nations in New York City before retiring in 2013.
Dr. Morash’s military decorations and awards are numerous. He earned a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Framingham State College in 2000, a doctorate in the Humanities in 2015 from Salve Regina University and is an adjunct professor at Norwich University since 2012, teaching courses on Project Management and Intelligence Operations in the Strategic Studies and Defense Analysis program.
The JHP staff and board are grateful for Dr. Morash’s commitment to the mission of enhancing lives through photography and looking forward to reaching more veterans with our work.
