Cpl. Derno McCary, an observer-coach/trainer with 2-312th Regiment, 174th Infantry Brigade, Division East, First Army, volunteers during his off-duty time to serve pizza to homeless people in Camden, N.J., March 2, 2014. The pizza was purchased with donations from members of the 2-312th, which is based at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst, N.J. Another picture of McCary, taken by fellow observer-coach/trainer Sgt. Richard Saenz and posted online March 3, was immediately widely shared, generating thousands of hits and hundreds of positive comments in just a couple of days. Saenz, who organized the pizza delivery, said he posted the photo not for personal recognition, but hoping to inspire others to help the needy in their communities.
