Operation Patriot

MacDill Air Force Base, Fla. -- Deputy Kevin Shea understands what it is to serve. As a member of the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office, he spends his working hours serving the citizens of Tampa. In his off time, he volunteers with Operation Patriot. This charity, started in part by local law enforcement, provides veterans at the Baldomero State Veterans Nursing Home everything from toiletries to video games - items not covered under the veterans' $35 a month allowance. Thornton recently helped deliver 239 boxes to the nursing home on Veteran's Day. (Official United States Air Force photo by Staff Sgt. Shawn C. Rhodes)
