I’ve always had great respect those who fought for our country. In February, this respect led me to become a volunteer teacher at the New England Shelter for Homeless Veterans. Since then, Iâ€™ve gotten to know and spend a lot of time with those who gave everything up for you and I.
A resident of the shelter once asked me why I’d want to become a Marine after seeing what happened to them? Truth is I see their sacrifices as encouraging. So many people work hard their whole lives for nothing but a paycheck. Like the men and women of the shelter, I want to work hard at something that will make a difference for our country.
I am currently teaching my fifth and final semester at the shelter.
