Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in Fort Bliss, TX, Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and the DMZ, South Korea (2nd ID). My MOS was 16H, military intelligence.
How are you #StillServing?
After 20 years in education as a teacher and counselor, I still continue to mentor and guide some of my former students who are now in their 20s. In middle and high school they volunteered with me in the Dallas community. Today they are first-in-family or first-generation college grads who are nurses, teachers, social workers, a dental hygienist and a doctoral candidate in chiropractic. I also volunteer at the North Texas VA in Dallas and serve as the Deputy VA Rep for Soldiers’ Angels.
Why do you do it?
I believe that I am doing the work that the Lord has set before me and I feel honored to give back to my students and fellow veterans.
