What is this all about?
Before you consider giving to any non-profit organization,look around. Ask people. Who are the founders? What are their principles? What are their goals? What is their purpose? Do they have a history of giving back to their community and country? Do you want to be like them? Do you wish there were more people like them with a laser guided purpose in life?
Before the sun rises on Saturdays,Tuesdays and Thursdays for the last 10 years;without fail,a solitary man of determination and purpose has been awake before the sunrise. Stew Smith purposely lives near the U.S. Naval Academy –his alma mater.
While others are out partying and sleeping off a late night of fun,Stew has created workout meetups with prospective candidates for service to their country. These young men and women meet at the Naval Academy,at our training facility nearby. Never at any charge.
Stew works the sweat and weakness out of their bodies and replaces it with inspiration and strength. He thinks that all he is doing is providing physical fitness training. Stew is known to say,“It’s not my job to motivate you to want to serve the greatest country in the world. In my world,minimum fitness standards do not apply for a career where your physical fitness level can mean the difference between life and death for you and others.”
Unknowingly,but with a telling wink,Stew provides more inspiration and motivation with these statements than one could receive in a masters level university course.
Stew’s private and personal endeavor which has provided physical fitness training (PFT) to over 30,000 Americans so far,has reached its maximum capacity. One man can only be expected to do so much. Stew realized that what he was doing needed to go nationwide.
The only way that Stew could reach and prepare more Heroes of Tomorrow to serve America was to regroup and reorganize. With the help of a trusted and dedicated staff of volunteers,Stew was able to turn his passion of “Preparing Americans to Serve”into Heroes of Tomorrow –a organization,tax exempt under section 501 (c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
Stew is a “heavy lifter”;content to do it on his own. Little did he expect,but there are untold numbers of professionals just like him who write and call all the time to see what they can do to help out.
Well,here’s what you can do to help Stew and his Heroes of Tomorrow. - Dennis Buettner
