I’ve seen many soldiers injured in battle, and I know the psychological toll it takes to come back from that. I want to do anything I can to help our injured vets.
William spent 14 years in the Army and ended up as a staff sergeant with a specialty in maintaining medical equipment. Since leaving the army, William has joined his wife Tina in volunteering as a mentor for their local elementary and high schools. They work primarily with black urban youths. This may involve attending sporting events one day or visiting the Frederick Douglas Museum in Washington the next. Mostly it involves spending time with, talking to, and caring for young people at risk. William has also joined the volunteers helping Disabled American Veterans. This means providing counseling, being a chauffeur, joining the vets for medical appointments, and providing all the support, encouragement, and hands-on assistance he can.
