As I investigated Minuteman and experienced the passion and commitment of Matt, Paul, and the other volunteers, I knew I had to be a part of this organization. It was clear early on that by joining Minuteman I would be able to help people, and that I could push myself to learn new life skills.  The training requirements are thorough preparation for truly rendering aid and support in the immediate aftermath of a disaster. We are all blessed in so many ways and the opportunity to serve others in their hour of need is an honor and a privilege.
