Where did you serve and what did you do?
Desert Storm, Bosnia, Korea
How are you #StillServing?
I run a weekly “Coffee with a Veteran” on Zoom to check in with veterans across the country who just want to share some time with others, or need advice. I also run a weekly “Cooking with a Veteran” where I share cooking tips, and the food I make is given out to veterans in the community. Each month I run a 5k where the funds go to support veterans in the community. Our post also sponsors 2 soup kitchens a week and raises money to help local veterans in need.
Why do you do it?
When I got out I thought there was no one to support and help me, I felt like I was on my own, but a VFW member found me and helped me, and so I continue that on to ensure that no veteran out there feels alone or unwanted.
