Review for VALORS ON 8TH, Tempe, AZ, USA
I went on an outing of sorts with RO and Valors on 8th. Simple event. Stand up in front of a room full of students and just say name rate and service. I have a reputation as a good speaker at funerals and weddings and have even spoke/preached at church a couple times. But to stand up in front of a bunch of wide eyed grade schoolers almost took me out. But really it was a chance to sit with them have a bit of breakfast and coffee. Then have sixth graders look up to you. DANG. And it was like being with shipmates 7 or8 of us different branches different times and it all gave me value and made me remember the look in those kids eyes was not about the who , what , when or where. They looked at all of us for who we were. That one thing we all shared. Someone asked who will go and we all said send me. And that's what those kids saw. Thanks RO. And it's not right that I have to choose one role over the other to post this review. I started as a volunteer and ended up as a client served.
