Ever wonder what our service men and women go through. The Nearly Naked Ruck March is the end of this month and can show you exactly how it feels. The big picture with all of this is to take care of those in service as they integrate.
I had the honor of volunteering to sell those cute little red poppy flowers that are traditional seen in May.
