“Of everything I’ve done in my life, being a Marine Veteran has turned out to be one of the best things that has happened to me.  Serving our country with pride and honor has made me more respectful of our God, our Country, my Family, Friends, Coworkers, and Fellow Veterans, hopefully making me a better and more productive person” - Don Hawkins
