A tri-state man is finding the time to give back wherever and whenever he can.

He spends countless hours making his community a better place for all.

"You don't really think about it until they come up to you and say thank you for doing what you do," says Scott Zoll.

Scott Zoll of Newburgh wears many hats.

A full time Post Office employee, he also takes time to work at the Volunteer Fire Department.

A decision he made after the tornado in 2005.

"I always felt like that if nobody volunteered, then nobody would be there to help," says Zoll.

But his contribution to the community doesn't stop there.

The Marine spending time each year volunteering with Honor Flight, originally as a guardian and now as a bus captain.

"When you meet these veterans especially the World War II veterans, I mean every veteran is special, but the greatest generation, there's a reason they call them that," says Zoll. "I went as a guardian, and just meeting them, talking to them, the stories, are just unbelievable."

His time spent, also helping the younger generation.

The Newburgh dad helping with his daughters Girl Scout Troop.

But throughout the years, although he's spent countless hours helping others, it's the lessons he's gained in return.

"Commitment and sticking with that commitment," says Zoll. "Helping a family out when their loved one is at the worst time. The veterans, telling them thank you for your service, and they almost cry because they think they're forgotten, but they are not."

Not all heroes wear capes. Sometimes it's our neighbors, like Scott Zoll, who have found ways to make the world just a little brighter and better in the process.

"If you think you're interested in it, just go out and do it and give back," says Zoll.
