I came across Karl again last year through a mutual friend and when he told me about Gallant Few and it's mission I knew this was something I had to be a part of.
I left active duty rather suddenly after a service-connected injury and although my transition worked out fine I sure could have used Gallant Few and the mentorship that's offered. I'm NOT a combat veteran and I don't face any issues as a result of having served in combat, but I'd do whatever I could for one of my brothers that does.
Serving in the Army is noble and honorable but I've never experienced or witnessed a bond between individuals that may have never even met each other before like I have within the Ranger Regiment community and Gallant Few takes that bond even further.
If my efforts are enough to make a difference in just one Rangers life, than it makes it all worth it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I believe there are two sides to the benefits of this organization. There are those being served, being provided with services through the efforts of the Gallant Few team and then there are the benefits that people like me see. As a volunteer I have the opportunity to serve the Ranger community and fellow veterans. I get the chance to "shoulder more than my share of the task, 100% and then some.". What I get out of choosing to be part of this team is immeasurable and you can't put a price tag on it.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I would like to see more volunteers step up and offer to take responsibility for crucial operational tasks so Karl Monger, the Executive Director could free up some time and focus on initiatives to aggressively expand the organization and it's impact.
How did this volunteer experience make you feel?
Exceptional and it's a great challenge to know the more successful I am at what I do for Gallant Few, the greater impact we can all have.
