WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE --

National Air and Space Intelligence members volunteer their time outside work to provide meals at the Dayton Veterans Administration Medical Center Fisher House on Feb. 20, 2020.

During the volunteer event, six members of the Geospatial Intelligence Analysis Squadron bought, prepared and cooked meals for veterans located at the medical center.

“At a very young age, my parents taught me and my sister the value of giving back. I recall them telling me and my sister that it only takes a simple act of kindness to give back to a worthy cause like helping others,” said Staff Sgt. Randolph Koram, NASIC member and volunteer team lead. “Serving the veterans and their families with a nice and happy friendly dinner was rewarding for all the volunteers who supported this wonderful event.”

Koram reached out before the event to the Dayton VAMC to see what opportunities were available to assist local veterans. With a suggestion of “Bring a Meal to Fisher House”, he then reached out to his unit for volunteers and received resounding support.

“I asked my unit if anyone wanted to volunteer,” said Koram. “There was no hesitation or shortage of hands.”

The team decided on a Hispanic Themed dinner and started their preparations. The team bought the food, cut the onions and with a few tears in eye, prepared the dish to serve veterans at the Fisher House.

“Serving the veterans and their families with a nice and happy friendly dinner was rewarding for all the volunteers who supported this wonderful event,” said Koram. ““This was a team effort and I appreciate my teammates very much.”
