Jeremy Harrell is the kind of guy who is driven to serve. “I learned at a very early age that I have a servant’s heart,” he says. He always wanted to do something that he felt was bigger than him, and he’s always been pulled to answer a call to service. He also was adventurous, and wanted to see what the world looked like beyond his Kentucky home.
While he was still in high school, Jeremy took it upon himself to help elderly community members by running errands for them. He didn’t think much about it as he was helping his grandmother out anyway. When he noticed that many of his grandmother’s neighbors also had trouble getting out and about it just seemed natural for him to knock on their doors and offer some assistance.
The call to serve grew stronger, as did his need for adventure. So one day while still in high school Jeremy wandered to the local recruiter’s office and emerged as a delayed entry army recruit.
