“My grandfather was a WWII veteran, and I always admired his bravery and sense of honor. As a young man, I wanted to be just like him and join the services, but life took me in another direction, requiring me to help run the family business, and support the rest of my family. I never lost my desire to provide meaningful service to my country and to those actually fighting in wars, so in my grandfather’s honor, I want to provide the veterans with any opportunity and service I can.”
