I believe it is important to give back and also making the community better place.  We have helped in soup kitchens and local shelters giving out food to those in need.  Giving back will help unite our communities and it brings people together for that awesome feeling you get knowing you are helping others. 

 We love to also support other volunteers and feed them as we can as they give back.  We are hoping to be able to do much more in the community as our company grows, because we believe that giving back is extremely beneficial.  

​Brig. Gen. Marco Coppola, Commander, 2nd Brigade, Texas State Guard, and Command Sgt. Maj. Ronald Smith, along with 2nd Brigade mascot, Lola, visit troops during Annual training, responding to mock hurricane “Ana”, to ensure readiness for our primary missions of operating the Emergency Tracking Network (ETN), Shelter Operations, and Points of Distribution in El Campo, Texas, May 14, 2021. Training was also held simultaneously in Houston and Conroe, similar to how troops would be widely deployed in the event of an actual natural disaster. These exercises are vital to maintaining readiness for the hurricane season. (Texas State Guard photo by Warrant Officer 1 Gregory Illich)
