PHOENIX — "If I can do it, I will," explains Chris Spicer, an Air Force Veteran, and founder of the non-profit, Veteran Advocates on Call.

"This is not for me. This is for every one of our brothers and sisters who are out there. This is my opportunity to reach out even further in the community and let them know that we are family and whatever we can do to help, however we can help, that's what we are here."

Veteran Advocates on Call helps military members and their families with just about everything--and we do mean everything!

Help with PTSD, financial assistance, medical help - they leave no stone unturned when it comes to veterans.

"We try to cut out the middle man and say look, this is where you go so they can get relief as soon as possible."

For Spicer, who comes from a family of veterans, this sense of patriotism, loyalty, and love for country, runs through his veins.

"I feel it in my chest. I'm a disabled veteran. I'm an amputee. I don't have a really good heart right now. I have a lot of challenges that challenge me every day. I feel like I can relate on a ground level... that I've been injured and going through things."

And Chris Spicer, that is why you are one of Nick's Heroes!
