When did you first begin volunteering with the USO?
July 5, 2014
How did you hear about us and what made you want to get involved with the USO?
When I first got to the island it was part of my brief, and I really enjoyed being able to help others. And I really want to make a difference in someone else’s life.
How has your experience been so far?
My experience has been, and is still going, great. I couldn’t have asked for a better way to help others. I enjoy being here.
What have you found as your greatest strength as a volunteer?
Getting what needs to be accomplished such as cleaning, keeping it safe, making sure everything is back in place or returned.
What keeps you coming back?
Knowing others are coming back.
Know someone whose accomplishments, talents, job, hobby, volunteer work, awards or good deeds qualify them for 15 minutes of fame? How about someone whose claim to glory is a bit out of the ordinary – even, dare we say, oddball? If so, nominate them here.
