Active supporter of our troops and veterans

Have you ever volunteered before? In what way? (Tutoring, Kids, Humanitarian, Cleanup, Nature, Animals) Still doing so?

Been volunteering for years. Currently working with: Soldiers' Angels Representative on the Hines VAVS (Veterans Administation Volunteer Service) Board, American Legion Auxiliary - Veterans Affairs & Rehabilitation Chair, Volunteer at Hines VA, Fundraising to support veterans, deployed military and wounded veterans

What do a person's day-to-day actions REALLY say about them? What do the words MORAL FIBER mean to you? Tell us what you think...

Helping others makes me feel good. Volunteering at the Veterans Administration Hospital has made me realize that I may have my own problems to deal with, but there are others worse off than me. Was taught from a very young age what is right and what is wrong. So I have good moral fiber instilled in me since birth.

Are you new to Chicago? Might you need or can you help carpool? As a fun community of members, transport to non-city events never ends up a problem!

Lived in the burbs for 15+ years

Occasionally outside groups contact us looking for help. Is there a specific type (animals, kids, etc) of volunteering you would like us to keep you mind for in these situations?

Any, will see what fits in my schedule

Where did you hear about our group? A Current Member (who)? Meetup link/email? Flier? Speech? Facebook? Other? (Specific answers will help us & the number we reach out to *GROW* :)

Edward is in another meetup group I am in
