Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served overseas during Operation Enduring Freedom as an MP.
How are you #StillServing?
I started a local chapter of the Marine Corps League in 2012 and it has become one of the fastest growing detachments in the state of Alabama. Starting the Marine Corps League also provided needy families with Toys for Tots in my city during Christmas.
Why do you do it?
I started it because I was out of work due to injuries I had received in the service and I was raising my son on my own and there was no place for me to get help. I tried everywhere to get help. I was waiting on my VA disability and scared to death. So, I just thought there should be more help for veterans in my city who might find themselves in the same situation. I had served in the Marine Corps and the Army and after ten years, I didn’t know what I was going to do. It was the most helpless feeling I had ever had in my life.
