Being a "Proud American" means investing in our children and ensuring they have every opportunity to be the next great "Proud Americans", and one way of doing that is providing them with the tools they need to succeed. This more often than not includes reading. Reading is more than words on a page, it empowers us through knowledge, enriches us through imagination and connects us to an infinite timeline of various people and stories. In this episode, Marine Corps Veteran and Proud American Johnny Joey Jones introduces us to Stan Tucker, the founder of Leap for Literacy, a literacy program he started in Atlanta with a focus on underprivileged youth.
