|Lamont at HVAF|
Lamont is a four-year Navy veteran who served on six deployments. As a shipping and receiving clerk he was stationed in Norfolk, Virginia. When his service ended, Lamont struggled to find work. In 1987, he was hired at G&G Metal Spinners where he dedicated 18 years of his life. But, working in machinery took a toll on him physically. He went to see doctors and specialists and who determined that the persistent lower back pain was only going to get worse if he kept doing that kind of work.
