“To whom much is given, much is required” (Luke 12:48). Martin Plumlee says that he is blessed with a selfless wife, healthy and happy children, a growing business, and good health. Additionally, Martin has the honor and privilege of serving his country and wearing the uniform again in the Army Reserves in Nashville. Martin uses each of these blessings to give his time and talents to others. Martin said, “It is my sincerest belief that if more citizens would give back and pour their time and resources into their local communities, the nation would be better.”

Martin puts these words into action as he serves on the board of directors for REBOOT Combat Recovery and Habitat for Humanity. Martin is passionate about the military, and specifically about helping veterans transition from combat to civilian life. REBOOT works to build a community of support around vets while healing them both physically and spiritually. Martin’s other main passion is economic empowerment. Therefore, he serves underprivileged families by working to provide them with homes and opportunities through Habitat. Martin challenges himself and others by saying, “There are 165 hours in a week. How do you use those hours to make your little piece of the world better?”
