A Night of Honor 

 A Gala Benefiting Struggling Veterans

November 12, 2022 @ 6:30 pm

Anchorage Museum at Rasmuson Center 

625 C St.

Anchorage, Ak 99501

 Revive Alaska Community Services is honored to extend this special invitation to you to participate in our upcoming Veteran’s Day weekend benefit gala. The benefit is designed to bring awareness to our campaign to help struggling veterans and to the dire nature of veterans experiencing homelessness. We also want to highlight and encourage our Alaskans Helping Veterans Initiative. 


At the beginning of 2022, there were about 240 homeless veterans who were in need of housing in Alaska according to Alaska’s VA homeless case management. Knowing how harsh winters are in Alaska, the thought of this is unfathomable, especially given that a high percentage of this population are seniors. 


We would like to house at least a portion of these veterans in our Comfort Homes Villas affordable housing project.


Comfort Homes Villas is a housing community we are developing with former temporary barracks we acquired from JBER. These units will be relocated from the base here in Anchorage, upgraded, and converted into fully furnished housing for our veterans. Within this facility, we will offer various services to our struggling veterans to help them regain independent living.


We are calling on all Alaskans and all good-hearted people to help us give back to veterans who put their lives on the line for every one of us by supporting this all-inclusive veteran services project.

Jody Fuller

Jody Fuller is a comic, speaker, writer, and soldier, who served three tours of duty in Iraq. He is a lifetime stutterer and a member of the National Speakers Association. In 2018, he was named one of the "Top 40 0ver 40" in Alabama Magazine and named him as one of "15 Southern stand-up comedians that will make you laugh 'til you cry."

Growing up in Opelika, AL Jody had to overcome two things: being poor and stuttering. Enlisting in the Army after high school helped him overcome the income challenges but the stuttering still poses daily challenges. After a 4 year stint as an Army medic, he returned home to attend college at Auburn University at Montgomery where he received a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration.

After 9/11, Jody returned to the Army via Officer Candidate School (OCS) at Ft. Benning, GA. In November 2003, he deployed to Iraq for one year as a platoon leader of the third largest platoon in the United States Army with the 296th Brigade Support Battalion of the Army’s First Stryker Brigade.

In 2006, Jody left the active component of the Army to join the Alabama National Guard, and in 2014 transferred to the Reserves where he was promoted to the rank of Major.

When not in uniform, Jody travels the country speaking to and/or entertaining a wide variety of groups ranging from the Boys and Girls Club of America to the Department of Veterans Affairs to comedy clubs, civic clubs, and corporate America. He's worked with some of the biggest names in comedy.

Whether he's talking about growing up poor, the military, or stuttering, his show ultimately details his adapt and overcome attitude and will leave you not only in stitches but also inspired.

He has also been published 10 times in the Chicken Soup for the Soul series.

Jody enjoys meeting new people, traveling, and eating at mom and pop restaurants across the land. He currently lives in Opelika, Alabama.”
