In times of need, we unite from all walks of life to help one another. It has been an honor to play a small role in this effort.
“ … Thank you very much for your support of my service to our nation and most importantly to our fellow American citizens who call the island of Puerto Rico home. This has been an invaluable experience for me as an American, a United States Army Reserve Officer, and a fellow citizen. I have no doubt this will stick with me for the rest of my life.”
