Numerous Soldiers, including some who were combat-wounded, were "Making a Difference" at Fort Hood's Warrior Transition Brigade (WTB) headquarters Oct. 21. One of the benefactors was the Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC), which provides compassionate services to Warriors in Transition (WT) and their families. Besides basic military personnel services, the SFAC provides financial and education counseling, child services and career information to assist the wounded, ill or injured Soldier transition either back into the service or as a civilian member of the community. Adding a bit of sparkle to the SFAC's windows is Staff Sgt. Catherine Armenta. Make a Difference Day, which is celebrated annually the 4th Saturday in October, promotes community involvement and is the nation's largest day of volunteerism. This year it is celebrated Oct. 22. Sponsored by USA WEEKEND Magazine, 2011 marks Make a Difference Day's 21st year. (U.S. Army photo by Gloria Montgomery, WTB PAO)
