Fort Campbell, KY – Spc. Kannesha Nept starts out every weekend with a game plan. Dinners, games and laughing with friends top her list.

This sounds typical of many soldiers here, but it’s anything but. Dinners are with her Little Sister from the Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Games are at local convalescent homes. Laughs are shared all around.

Selfless service goes beyond the uniform for Nept, a Georgiana, AL, native, as she volunteers her free time and encourages her battle buddies to get involved as well.
