Recently, I received an invitation from a military-support organization to spend the day with the troops. As a member of the Navy League in the US, and the Royal British Legion Scotland and Royal British Legion in the United Kingdom, I never pass up those opportunities.
The invitation came from Operation Homefront Missouri, an organization whose entire purpose is supporting military families and getting them the things they need and the support they find essential. It’s an organization Monsanto supports, and that is supported by many other companies and individuals in the area.
So, with limited knowledge and unclear expectations, I drove down to Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri, to spend the day with the US Army’s 94th Engineering Battalion and the people who work for and support Operation Homefront.
What a day!
