11.13.17.Irma.FBTwo days before Management Assistant Scott T. planned to evacuate his Fort Myers, Florida, home ahead of Hurricane Irma, he got a call that changed his plans.

His National Guard unit had been called to duty.

Within hours, Scott shifted roles from running the Exotic Car Collection branch in downtown Naples to that of a National Guard officer working a state of emergency.

“My unit had been activated, so instead of evacuating to Georgia with my wife, I had 48 hours to report to Tampa with the National Guard,” says Scott, a First Lieutenant with the 53rd Infantry Brigade Combat Team. “With the state of emergency declared, we knew we’d have to act fast.”

savannah employee climbs world-rankings in shot putOne-point-four meters. About four and half feet. It’s all that separates Rick E. from his cherished goal: To proudly wear “USA” on his chest as a member of the national team at the 2020 Paralympic Games in Tokyo, Japan.

Rick is well on his way today—fresh off the national championship he won in June as a shot-putter in the F34 classification. His best throw: 8.1 meters.
