Chapter: Philadelphia
OSD Affiliation: Chapter Leader
OSD Member Since: 2016

Why did you join OSD?
“I originally joined OSD because I believe that video games can provide a much-needed distraction and help get your mind off your current situation when you are deployed overseas.

What has been your favorite event with OSD? 
“I personally like the Thank You Deployments’ because it means so much to the veterans.”

How do you personally serve your community through OSD? 
“I’ve led Thank You Deployments’, delivered “‘Supply Drops,’ and done community service work at local veteran homeless shelters.” 

What inspires you?
“Fighting veteran homelessness and helping soldiers successfully transition out of the military.”

What is your favorite book? Why? 

“Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo.” 

How has OSD impacted you and your family’s life? 
“I’ve personally have been impacted by hearing feedback from Veterans and how seeing how appreciative they are of the work OSD is doing. I also enjoy hearing stories about how people got ‘Supply Drops’ years back and it still affects them to this day.”

What would you say to someone considering joining OSD? 
“There’s no greater feeling than the feeling you get from serving your community, veterans, and military members with OSD. You can’t buy that, you have to work for it.”
