Recently she created Success4Vets. a foundation which provides military leaders whose ranks are E4-06 an opportunity to showcase their leadership skills as they transition towards civilian leadership. Using the documentary about Vietnam Veterans "Thank You For Your Service" (which Pegine produced and visioned) members of Success4Vets showcase their leadership abilities as they create events which offer Vietnam Veterans the thank you ceremonies they deserve.
