SFC LeRoy Yeartie describes the history of the Food Bank to the Western Thumb Tea Party Group during their meeting on November 6th, 2014 in Vassar, Michigan.
SFC Yeartie is the driving force behind getting the Food Bank up and running. He saw first hand the struggles many of the Reservists that train at the Army Reserve Center in Buena Vista were experiencing.
With over 30 years in the Military, a Masters Degree in Criminal Psychology, and four tours overseas under his belt, SFC Yeartie has what it takes to make sure his people don’t go hungry.
Next to him is Judy Adams who has personally delivered food baskets to the many veterans, Reservists and Guardsmen who needed a helping hand.
