Official Release from the USO (interview with C/SrA Bowman)
|C/SrA Garrett Bowman|
When did you start with USO Delaware?
Is there a specific reason why you wanted to support our military & their families?
The military deserves respect for fighting our battles; they are the ones protecting us so we should support them and their families. I also feel that our military has many HEROES that go unrecognized or aren’t given the credit they deserve. I feel I can give back to them by volunteering with the USO to support them.
Tell us about YOU? What is your background, career, hobby or favorite family event that other people didn't know about you!
I am 15 years old and a Senior Airmen in the Civil Air Patrol. I find great interest in the military, and my favorite activities are playing Lacrosse, Wrestling and volunteering. I am also an active participant in the Student Council.
Do you volunteer anywhere else?
Yes, I volunteer at the Delaware Hospital for the chronically ill where I enjoy fishing with the guys and playing dominoes with the ladies. I have volunteered with New Castle County Safety Town to help educate children in safety. I also will stay after school and help teachers.
Have you ever been affiliated with the military in the states? Overseas?
Yes. (Air Force Auxiliary) Civil Air Patrol
Do you have family members/relatives in the military? Are any deployed at this time?
Yes, I have family in the military but only one of my cousins is deployed.
