Saluting William Carter for his service to our country and community

Carter served in the Marines and National Guard

HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - In the Marines and then the National Guard, William Carter has served our country more than 12 years. "Most of the men in my family had served and it just seemed like the natural thing to do," he says.

After his most recent tour of duty from 2009 to 2012, Carter says he was struggling. Then he saw a report on TV about helping others. "They were talking about one of the things that were helping veterans was doing community work," says Carter. "And I have found doing that has helped me tremendously."

Carter formed a local chapter of the Marine Corps. League in Ft. Payne. "Last year it provided Toys for Tots for over 700 families in DeKalb County," he says. 

WZDX is teaming up with Still Serving Veterans and AAMCO Transmissions to give William Carter 15 hundred dollars.

James Vance is the owner of AAMCO and a veteran himself. Vance says, "really did want to continue to be some point of resource for a veteran that may need a hand up."

"Thank you. I was very surprised," says Carter.
