Brittany's Bigs: Dyess Airman Gives Back

"I thought it was gonna be a really good opportunity. I'm looking to kind of get some life skills for children in the future," said Benjamin Glynn.

Glynn is a Dyess Airman and says when he first arrived at this base, he was introduced to the non-profit organization and signed up to be a Big Brother.

"I thought it'd be a really good way to give back, benefit myself and the community," recalled Glynn.

Glynn is in his mid-twenties and believes being a mentor now will prepare him for what's to come in the future.

"You learn about kids, and if you plan on having kids, it is a good life lesson. It gives you a head start on it, " said Glynn.

Having a Big Brother in the United States Air Force is pretty cool for little bro, James Evans.

"I'd have to say, going on base. People working on airplanes," says Evans.

These two brothers have been matched for about a year and Evans encourages everyone to sign up for a new sibling of their own.

"More adults need to get involved and the community. This is just one of those aspects. There are tons of other things you can do, but this is a really big thing. Children are our future.
