WIth several past and present military members in our family, it’s always nice to hear about companies that take the time to honor our country’s Military Service Members. Throughout the month of June, Dollar General is partnering with P&G to celebrate our Veteran’s as the Every Day Heroes we know them to be.
So many Veterans go on to do great things when they return from service in the military. They enrich our communities and continue to make us proud of them for all they do, both in and out of service. One such hero is being featured in Dollar General’s Every Day Heroes Program this month — Decorated Veteran, Sparky Edwards. You can watch the inspiring Military video, which features Sparky, on the Dollar General website.
Once an at-risk teenager, Edwards turned his life around with the help of the Thunderbird Youth Academy (TYA), one of the National Guard’s 34 Youth ChalleNGe academies. The rigorous program helped him earn his GED and prepared him to enter the military where he served tours of duty in South Korea and Iraq. Today, Edwards is a successful business owner, husband and father and is pursuing his Ph.D. He credits TYA with saving his life.
I went from being on track for a jail cell to being a decorated war veteran, business owner, former senior federal government employee and soon-to-be Dr. Sparky D. Edwards,” Edwards said.
Today, along with his family, work and schooling duties, Sparky offers his time as a volunteer for and mentor to at-risk youth through the National Guard Youth ChalleNGe Program located in Virginia. He is just one of many Veteran’s who are enriching and inspiring our communities and youth. It’s so important to say Thank You and honor our service women and men, they give of themselves so freely to serve and protect all of us every single day! Together with Dollar General, let’s salute our brave Veteran’s inspiring service with great savings on national brands, every day!
