When I was a young teenager, I lived at NAS Chase Field in Beeville, Texas. There is no longer a US Naval Air Station there. At that time, I volunteered with the Red Cross helping give swimming lessons to young children of the service men. My family set a fine example of helping others. I was proud to help the Red Cross, but I think even more proud to help the military families. The Red Cross reaches people in so many different ways.
