As a former NSA employee, Air Force veteran and retired Police Officer, David Spillman might at first seem unapproachable. But as volunteer case worker for the Red Cross, David’s manner is anything by intimidating.
When speaking of his service to his country, David’s slight smile and narrowed eyes hint at a deep history of challenges and victories—a subtle fact that allows him to forge a deep connection with the Red Cross clients he helps.
As clients sit down at his station at the Flood Assistance Center in Austin, Texas, he greats them humbly and speaks to them warmly.
“I have had many jobs,” said David. “But in the end I just enjoy being of service, and that’s what drew me to the Red Cross.”
