Making a Better Nation

By: Kingsley East

 

Nashville, TN, December 20: “There are 165 hours in a week. How do you use those hours to make your little piece of the world better?” Martin Plumlee works every day to give his time and talents to help his family, community, and country. Martin attended West Point for college and went on to serve as an officer in the army. Now, he continues to wear the uniforms as a part of Nashville’s Army Reserve. Martin is passionate about serving the military and helping veterans as they transition from combat into civilian life. Therefore, Martin works on the board of directors for an organization called REBOOT Combat Recovery and serves with the Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve (ESGR). Through these non-profits, Martin gets to be a part of veterans’ recoveries and lives after serving the nation.

 

Additionally, Martin is passionate about economic empowerment, and he hopes to provide people with opportunities that lead to a successful life. Therefore, he is a part of Habitat for Humanity’s board of directors and their development committee. Martin helps organize and fundraise for Habitat to build houses for underprivileged families. By serving with Habitat and continuing to help the military, Martin uses his gifts to give back to others. Martin feels blessed by his health, family life, and business work; therefore, he aims to use his circumstances to help others. He said, “It is my sincerest belief that if more citizens would give back and pour their time and resources into their local communities, the nation would be better.”
