Why Soldiers’ Angels?

What ties George to Soldiers’ Angels? We would say his giving heart found us, but here’s how George tells it. 

“Last Veteran’s Day I was thinking I should do something to show my appreciation to our armed services and their families in some way and I thought it would be a good idea to donate some of the royalties from the sale of my upcoming (at the time) novel Spiritwood. I then started asking friends and posting on Facebook for suggestions of groups. I got a lot of great suggestions including the Soldier’s Angels organization (from someone who volunteers for Soldier’s Angels). I did some investigation of the various groups, and Soldier’s Angels seemed like the best fit.

Writing this book is something that I’ve been working on for a while and any personal monetary rewards are secondary to actually completing the task and having people read and enjoy it.  I have another job working for a great company (Loudspeaker Components, LLC in Lancaster Wisconsin) and I thought this would be a great opportunity to pay back some of the good fortune I’ve had in my life to the most deserving people I could think of, members of the armed services and their families. I also wanted to tie it to the book because the royalties come in for as long as the book is sold and so could be ongoing for an extended period of time and not limited in any way.

I did make a commitment to donate a minimum amount regardless of the book sales, but there is no limit to the top end and I hope to be able to donate much more than my minimum commitment.  I also intend to continue with any other books I write in the future.” 


George’s Military Ties

“My oldest brother retired as a Major from the Marines and I have other brother-in-laws, nephews, cousins, friends and other acquaintances who are or have been members of various branches of the armed services. I respect and admire the courage, honor and selflessness of every member of the armed services and their families as well.  I know that as a nation we don’t do enough through government programs to support them and I’m thankful there are organizations like Soldier’s Angels that help to fill in where tax funded support falls short. I am also happy that Soldier’s Angles organization has been so helpful in getting me set-up to be able to do this.”
