This week’s Service Spotlight is on Hunter Riley. In his capacity as former director of the Pat Tillman Foundation’s Tillman Military Scholars program, Hunter facilitated the relationships that would lead to the founding of T6B. Throughout our early development, he was our biggest supporter providing advice, encouragement, and helping us build relationships. Hunter was also the spark that ignited Operation Oliver, as he called upon T6B to assist with a service project and connected us to the folks that would lead us to Oliver. He recently received the Veteran Artist Program’s first ever service award, and he has truly been the “glue” for so many of us in the veteran nonprofit community. Simply put, T6B and Operation Oliver would not exist without him. And, nobody looks better in a bow tie and suspenders. Thank you for your service, Hunter.
