How are you #StillServing?
When I worked in long term healthcare, I served as the Veterans Ambassador for the facility for both residents and staff members to ensure that they were being recognized for their service, worked healthcare in a veterans facility until I was unable to do it due to a service connected injury and presently I continue to stay in constant contact with veterans even if it is just to lend an ear or a shoulder because as veterans we never leave anyone behind.
Why do you do it?
My family has a long, proud tradition of service to our nation. I am a son of a Vietnam veteran and made the decision to continue my family’s legacy of service. I feel that it is important to teach the younger generation the importance of service to our nation and show them the true cost of freedom also teach them to honor our nation’s heroes and never let them be forgotten.
