Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in Desert Shield, Desert Storm, but this was a group of women and men that served in every conflict since Vietnam was there.
How are you #StillServing?
Larry Miller a member of post 10302, sit up a cookout for the folks at the Quincy Illinois Veterans Home. The people there at the home had not had any kind of activates like this since Covid had locked us all down. I don’t know who got more out of it. The Veterans that served, or the Veterans that were served. The smiles from these kind people that had been locked down for 2 years, was beautiful! We served them up some hamburgers, and some Brats with all the side dishes. Including ice-cream for desert. The people there at the home may on day forget that day, but a bunch of old Veterans that had the pleasure of #stillserving, will never forget.
Why do you do it?
Why I guess I am selfish because, I need it, I need to be part of the solution in anyway I can. I need to feel like I still matter, I need to serve to make my community. Serving this community is simply the right thing to do for my soul.
