“Being a good steward in the community is part of who we are. I definitely feel like community service is one of the most important things I do because I know I’m not the only person in this world who’s ever needed to reach out. For probably the last six or seven years, I’ve coordinated the volunteer events for our squadron — if I wasn’t coordinating it, I was definitely participating in it. I kind of just took the role on naturally, on my own. My first marriage wasn’t quite so good, but I was able to get out of that to get on with my life, and the Virginia Air National Guard was part of that life change. I think that’s probably why it feels a little bit more personal."
