“As part of the San Diego pilot program for Veterans Community Connections (VCC) – an initiative designed to improve and broaden participation in community reintegration efforts for returning veterans and their families – the San Diego Chamber of Commerce reached out to Nuffer, Smith, Tucker for a survey to incorporate the views of San Diego-area veterans and military spouses. Nuffer, Smith, Tucker turned to Market Enhancement Group and its President, Barry Quarles – himself a veteran – to conduct the survey. Barry Quarles’ in-depth interviews with veterans and family members helped to focus and frame the VCC initiative to best suit the needs of veterans and military families returning or relocating to San Diego. The survey findings will also help frame the scope and design of other VCC programs around the country.”
