An article in a recent edition of the Repository quoted a Walmart employee as saying, I didnt sign up to be a hero. I dont begrudge anyone on how they react to this crisis. If you are scared, quit your job, stay home, or get another job. I am good with that.

But as for me, I served many years in my beloved Marine Corps. In 1991 I served as a dumb grunt in the corps during Desert Storm. I served because my country needed me. I served because I felt like I had something to offer.

In 2020 I am serving as a dumb grunt at Walmart during the pandemic. I am serving because my community needs me. I am serving because I think I have something to offer.
