U.S. Marine Corp
Thank you to the U.S. Marine Corp crew from the Marine Corps University – Staff Noncommissioned Officer Academy for cooking breakfast for Hilda Barg shelter guests! The breakfast burritos the USMC volunteers prepared were definitely a hit! The USMC group returned to the Hilda Barg shelter to revamp a cluttered closet. The closet is much more organized now, allowing the shelter to continue to accept and store generous donations from the community.
Gunnery Sergeant Brice Snyder said, “As a Marine, serving my country is a primary goal and I try to take the opportunity to give back whenever possible. Although I cannot speak directly for the Marines that also volunteered with me, I know they were, as was I, grateful and honored to have the chance to volunteer.”
In my opinion, service comes in many forms. I have traveled across this country many times throughout my career, I feel that my community is this entire Nation, not just where I have lived or currently reside.
