Army veteran Mindy Dougherty traveled to Fort Leonard Wood for basic U.S. Army training three days after her high school graduation. After suffering numerous medical issues during her service, she was prompted to write a book called Mindy’s Fight. She continues to give back to the people around her by growing her own organic produce and donating it to the largest food bank in Oregon. Visit her site www.feedmycity.net to learn more.
