Brook Leonard, 56th Fighter Wing commander.  “She has collected more than 1,000 backpacks and 10,000 school supplies in 12 years to help children living in shelters.  She started the first ‘Backpacks of Love’ drive ensuring more than 60 children a year, many of whom were victims of domestic violence, had clothing and school supplies.”
