In honor of National Volunteer Week, we'd like to recognize some of our amazing volunteers here at the Pearl Harbor Visitor Center! Mack has been volunteering at the park since 2012. He retired from the FAA in 2008 and was a hobby HAM radio operator at the USS Missouri. Through that hobby, he was enticed by a fellow operator to volunteer with us at Valor. He's been here ever since, coming at least twice week on Tuesdays and Thursdays. He's averaged about 750 volunteer hours per year! Mack can always be found at the front desk making visitors and rangers laugh and can be frequently heard using his coined phrase of "super duper good" when asked how he is any given day. When asked why he stays working with us, his response is simply, "I like people."
Mack, thank you for all you do for the park, your fellow volunteers and staff members, and our visitors! #Volunteers #NationalVolunteerWeek #WWIIValorNPS #NPWest #VolunteersRock
