The theme of mentoring and being a role model is part and parcel of supporting those who have lost their parent role model and this is an element Jim takes very seriously...or as seriously as he can. Jim shared that he does all the things on camp that he really loved doing and wants to keep going with, such as billie cart racing! Something I know I have had loads of fun with.
At the other end of the age scale. sometimes the volunteer legatee will be the only 'family' an older Legatee has and this is brought home around christmas time when the older Legatee's get a nightie. There is nothing about his volunteering that Jim takes for granted.
Caring for the families of those who served their country
