LAKE CITY, FL, December 24, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Joe Irizarry has been included in Marquis Who's Who. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.
Prior to embarking upon his professional path, Mr. Irizarry served in the 82nd Airborne Division of the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Upon returning from his active duty, he found himself under emotional distress, much like many other veterans who have been in combat. For the first 10 years of his civilian life, he attempted to numb this pain with alcohol, drugs and other vices. At one of the lowest points in his life, Mr. Irizarry returned to church and asked for God's help.
Incredibly grateful for God's newfound presence in his life, Mr. Irizarry was motivated to better understand the Lord. As a result, he earned an associate's degree in ministry from World Harvest Bible College. In 2009, Mr. Irizarry decided to serve other veterans and those who are struggling as a minister with the House of Refuge Ministries, through which he helps those who receive medications and psychiatric care become closer to Jesus Christ.
In the coming years, Mr. Irizarry intends to expand the House of Refuge in order to support more veterans. Eventually, he would also like to purchase another house and renovate it in order to help house women veterans. Likewise, Mr. Irizarry aims to build a chapel for veterans in the near future.
