  1. I have an undeniable love for those who served in the military or other sections of America which meant that they put themselves in harm’s way. To me they are the are the “special” people (decades of service) and deserve the utmost of respect today. With that being said, I would love to volunteer for those in need who served our country especially around this time of year. Many feel forgotten and I feel it is my duty to make their lives as special as possible… Long story…
