Recruiters give back on MLK Day

LAS VEGAS -- Martin Luther King Jr. Day not only celebrates the birthday of the famed civil rights leader, it also honors his call to service.

That call was answered by Master Sgt. Kayland Teemer, the equal opportunity advisor for 6th Recruiting Brigade in North Las Vegas, Nevada, Jan. 21.

Teemer, several recruiters and civilian employees spent their morning cooking breakfast for 15 families staying at the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Greater Las Vegas.

"Martin Luther King Jr. believed in helping others and giving back to the community," Teemer said. "So we thought this was a good way for us to give back to our community as well."

The Ronald McDonald House's mission is to provide a supportive "home away from home" for families and children who are receiving in- and outpatient medical treatment at local hospitals.

Teemer said she wanted to change the way the brigade observes federal holidays.

"We all know about Martin Luther King Jr. Day and we've all seen the PowerPoint presentations," Teemer said. "This seemed like a better way to observe the holiday - by actually doing something in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr."

Teemer said the families were excited to see Soldiers cooking breakfast for them and were thankful for their generosity.
