One has put in hundreds of hours of volunteer hours in with the Dyess We Care Team. The other spends his free time talking with elementary through high school students about fitness and nutrition. And they do so because they say it's their way to make a difference in the world.
Both say they feel it's necessary to give back because Abilene already gives so much to its military community. They also say that helping out, being good role models and making the world a better place is what they strive to do.
Though they already serve their country, they both say that means they must serve their community as well.
