Rancho Bernardo resident Tony Teravainen received a county proclamation on the deck of the USS Midway on behalf of his nonprofit, Support The Enlisted Project (STEP). Tony serves as the chair for the organization.
STEP serves as a local resource for supporting lower ranking military enlisted and recently honorably discharged veteran families during unexpected financial hardships.

“It feels good to know that an organization that I have committed so many hours to through the years is not only making a personal difference in military and veteran families’ lives, but also being recognized for its outstanding contribution to the community,” said Tony.
