Two Red Cross volunteers talked about their motivation for being part of this annual event.
Paul Allwright: “I am a veteran of the British Army. My Son, Brendan, is an airplane mechanic in the Marine Corps, stationed in North Carolina. I am here today because it is great to support our veterans, and it’s also my birthday. This is a great way to celebrate!”
Maria Millan: “I grew up in a military family and am a Blue Star Mother. My daughter, Kiara, is a Combat Medic. My father was in the Army and served in Vietnam. I always volunteer on Veteran’s Day because if I can’t be with my daughter, why not be here to support other veterans and members of the military.”
