Where did you serve and what did you do?
Ft. Benning/IRQ – 11B
How are you #StillServing?
As an active member of my community, I’m finding ways to plug into the social network back home, and find ways to continue to give back to the community that raised me.
For the last 4 years, I’ve had the pleasure of being a board member for a local non-profit organization that has had the opportunity to bring 100’s of pairs of brand new shoes for the back to school season, to underprivileged and disenfranchised youth – This started when I was a program manager for the local Boys and Girls Club, managing the Teen Services department – Currently I am looking to work with my local VFW chapter to start a retreat center in the PNW for units of any branch to come out and host reunions, all expenses paid.
Why do you do it?
After enough time licking my wounds, I figured it was time to get back to work – The work wasn’t going anywhere and neither was I – It was a match made in Heaven – Since the military, I haven’t felt at home unless I was in a capacity to help/serve – This is what I was designed to do.
