Character Strength Story: Andrew's character continues to inspire and motivate me on a daily basis. His love of learning, kindness, courage and appreciation of beauty and excellence, and wisdom stand out to me as his top strengths. While stationed in Hawaii, one of his hiking friends found a hurt dog who needed life-saving surgery. The friend could not afford the surgery, so Andrew paid for the surgery. He then continued to volunteer with SPCA in Hawaii, walking dogs, cleaning the facility or brainstorming ways they could get more help for the animals. -Submitted by Robyn, Andrew's Wife
