Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served from 1981-1986 and from 1996-2014 in the United States Navy and USNR. I was a Gunner’s Mate on many ships and also served 8 years with the Seabees where I made Chief Petty Officer. I did 2 tours in the Middle East and finished my career out in 2014 on Med Hold in Norfolk, VA.
Tell us how your dog is helping you continue #StillServing in your community.
I just don’t know what I would do without my best friend Sam. I volunteer at my local VA as well as being a member of the American Legion and VFW and after I get back from any of these functions he is always there to keep my spirits up. He’s too old now to come with me but he is always in my thoughts and I know when I get home he’ll be there for me!
Why do you do it?
I just want to give back to our Veterans, help my community be aware of the problems that Veterans could have and help out in my community whenever possible.
