Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in the US Army from 1983-1986 in the Quartermaster Corps, then returned to the Army in 1987-2010 and served as a Chaplain Assistant in the US Army Chaplain Corps. I now continue to serve our Army as a Civil Service employee.
How are you #StillServing?
I am still serving today through my active participation in the National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution (NSSAR). I have been a member since 2017 and was recently elected as the Vice President of the Colonel William Grayson Chapter, Virginia Society SAR. One of the “Patriotic Goals” of the NSSAR is: “This organization shall strive to honor, respect, and support the sacrifices of our veterans, especially those confined to residential and hospital facilities provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs.” https://www.sar.org/who-we-are/
Why do you do it?
I do it to honor and remember the service and sacrifices made by our original veterans who fought for the freedoms we all enjoy today. My fourth great-grandfather, Private Gerard Green, fought under General Washington at the Battle of Yorktown, the battle to end the American Revolution.
