Firefighter and Iraqi war veteran Patrick “Patch” Reyes is passionate about helping people during some of their darkest times.

In addition to his career in fire service, Patch has been volunteering at Champ Camp, a camp for child burn survivors, for more than 5 years.

“I think niceness is something we owe to each other as human beings, it seems to be more of a social courtesy. Kindness, you have to go out of your way to be kind,” he shared.
