As we approach our great nation’s birthday, I wanted to share a rewarding experience I recently had with my family.
This past Father’s Day, I was thrilled to be honored as the “Hometown Hero” at the Atlanta Braves game. It was truly a special occasion and I was blessed to be able to share it with people that mean the world to me.
The reason I was given this privilege to represent my fellow veterans was that I happened to be at the right place at the right time. A few months prior, I volunteered at a veterans program and met someone who was instrumental in making it all happen. You see, great opportunities can arise when you serve your community and help others, with no expectation of anything in return.
