I was able to go around to meet several residents and see if they needed tech support, though, funny enough, none of them actually needed help and their names just hadn't been crossed off of the list. Fortunately, I was able to sit down and talk with so.e of them and got to hear some pretty cool stories from a GW alumni! Later, I was able to help get an outing organized to go to a restaurant for some veterans.

It was really awesome to just hang out with the veterans and help them with things like tech support for things that we younger folk are more adept with, but they are unfamiliar with. It was also a great time to talk with them about their banter and sense of humor which I can really appreciate.
I thought that it was really nice that we were able to go out into a community that is right nearby and that we'll be able to see the impact of in the near fear future.
