The soldiers of Company C, 3rd Battalion, 116th Infantry Regiment, 116th Brigade Combat Team helped a Loudoun nonprofit June 2. Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers, a nonprofit that helps the elderly and disabled in the area, were approached by the soldiers to see if the group needed help and care. The soldiers of Company C with the Leesburg Armory were out in the neighborhood to see if they could lend a helping hand to people in need.
Soldiers aided someone who had maintained their own property who recently could no longer continue maintenance - so the soldiers mowed, trimmed, yanked weeks and limped up overgrown trees for the resident.
“I know that they do not want the recognition but I just want to take the opportunity to share this great story, about people willing to think of others and do something about it…,” Pat Wing, volunteer coordinator of Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers said in a release. “This is just one team of five out of the many soldiers who went out to help throughout Loudoun County. So on behalf of Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers and our client we want to extend our deepest thank you to Sgt. Ben Jost and his team for the incredible difference they made that day.”
