Syl Wyles, Army wife of 24 years and mother of two boys, knows the importance of a strong Army Family. Though her children are grown, she is committed to ensuring the comfort and security of other Army spouses and children. Eight years ago, she developed a scavenger hunt to not only help Soldiers and their Families acclimate to life on post, but to collect food for the Army food bank. The winner of over ten awards, including Ft. Lewis Volunteer of the Year, Wyles approaches volunteering with determination, strength and heart. She is an inspiration to Soldiers, their Families and other volunteers.

The Nation's strength starts here.
