Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – Staff Sergeant Cody Mackall, Fort Campbell’s Better Opportunities for Single Soldiers president, loves volunteering and giving back.

Mackall has been volunteering in one form or another all of his life and brought that volunteer spirit with him into the Army.

“Helping others makes me feel like I am doing right to the world, and who knows, maybe my one little thing that I did could mean the world to someone,” he said.

Since 2012, Mackall has logged more than 4,000 hours of volunteer service between BOSS, Salvation Army, Boy Scouts and working with Special Olympics.

“Volunteering is something that I do not like to be rewarded for doing because to me it just feels right,” he said
