I Am Hampton Roads: Sam Pressler

Please share this young mans story. We NEED more Sam Pressler’s in the world. When Sam contacted me a few years ago with his vision for the Armed Services Arts Partnership I could feel his passion. I held zero doubt he was the REAL DEAL! A young man of ACTIONS that followed up smart, compassionate & thought out words. He went on to make the Forbes list of “30 Under 30” for his work with Military Veterans, Active Duty & Families. Thank you Kerri Furey and everyone at The Hampton Roads Show for shining the spotlight on a phenomenal person! Congrats Sam! #inspirational

FEEL OTHERS STRUGGLE

Iโ€™m pretty much done with the endless anger (and insecurity) on display about EVERYTHING in our present lives. I feel like someone whose neighbors on all four walls never stop fighting. I think itโ€™s important to also feel beyond one’s self. This brief moment from my youth makes up a big part of my personal foundation. My hope when I agreed to share stories withย military.com was to be funny and positive. I hope this latest one touches on a bit of both while slipping in a nice message as well. Enjoy your holiday season my friends. PJ
