You know “The One”. You have seen him. He shows up to every drill, creates a positive working environment for every Guard Member, eager to help in any way he can. He teaches Sunday school every Sunday, visits junior Guard Members in person when they are hurt or sick between drills, and volunteers at the Food Bank when they need trucks unloaded.
