He coordinated many of the HOTH activities for the PGR, spearheaded his own "meals on wheels" for local veterans, led many meet and greet events whose entry requirements was a bag of food that he passed on to area veterans organizations, and kept his Grandmother's sewing machines running to make hundred's of quilts for the VA homes.
