Veterans

As America honors her military veterans, SCA offers two inspiring perspectives on veterans’ and active service men and women. The first is from Wes Adams, a US Navy veteran who served in Afghanistan and who is now leading a team of veterans training to become wildland firefighters outside Austin, TX.  The other comes from Jennifer Bright, who just completed her internship at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, and notes those in uniform are protecting both our people and our planet.
