As a senior executive with over three decades of leadership experience in the United States Air Force, James explains the origins of Operation Gratitude and its role in allowing civilians to give to military and first responders. Having learned from his father, James hopes the volunteer service goes beyond operation and inspires the next generation to make generosity a contagious element for supporters nationwide.
