KANSAS CITY, Mo. — When Brooklynne Roulette Mosley left the Air Force, her passion to serve didn’t stop. The University of Kansas student now advocates for civic causes and recruits others to volunteer.

“Taking off your uniform doesn't mean that you stop being a servant,” she pointed out.

Now, the VFW, headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, wants to highlight stories like Roulette Mosley’s. It launched a campaign called “Still Serving.”

The campaign is mostly online and on social media. Its website is full of stories of how military members volunteer once they get out of the service.

The VFW points out research shows veterans volunteer 25 percent more hours every year than civilians.

“You get a passion for those things because you get a chance to see what it's like to help people in the military and you kind of really chase that feeling when you get out,” Roulette Mosley said.
