Peter is the founder of the Thank A Service Member organization.

He, an Army veteran, and his wife, Ann, along with volunteers, coordinate  several programs and hand out Challenge coins to veterans, reservists and Active Duty service members that say “Thank You For Your Service” as it their belief that it is important to
publicly thank people for their service to our country.

Peter exemplifies the teachings of the Chicago attorney, Paul Percy Harris, best
known for founding Rotary Internationa based on fellowship and friendship.
