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

Frazier Allen: Are You Ready for an Encore Career?

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – Four and a half million. That’s how many retired Americans, over age 50, decided to go back to work or take on part-time volunteer roles after retiring. And there are another 21 million who say they’re ready to join them, according to a 2014 Encore Career survey.

The reasons vary. Some want to make the most of their talents; some want social interaction; still others seek to keep their minds sharp and their bodies busy. The extra money doesn’t hurt either, especially since there are several unknowns that can cloud your retirement picture (e.g., longevity, inflation and long-term care needs).

More and more Americans are going back to work or volunteering after retirement.

Busy, Alone and Drained: One “Power Couple’s” Tale of Quitting Everything

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – A few years ago, I was working at a table in the church lobby. A pastor’s wife (whose husband no longer worked in the Clarksville area) told me sheepishly that they weren’t doing much in the way of volunteerism anymore.

I said sincerely and empathetically, “Well sometimes your family has to be your ministry.” I meant it – for her of course. My ministry was the WORLD. Or at least it seemed.

In our busy lives, we need to make time for ourselve, our spouse and our family.
