No Greater Sacrifice welcomes our newest staff member, Boston Gilbert. Boston will be serving as NGS’ Associate Director and enters the organization already deeply acquainted. A former NGS Recipient, Boston received funding from NGS to attend Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. Boston's father, Major Troy Gilbert, was killed in action near Taji, Iraq in 2006 while providing close air support to Delta Force operators on the ground.

Boston graduated from SMU with a B.S. in Applied Physiology and Sport Management and a minor in Sport Performance Leadership where he was a member of the SMU Men's Soccer team. After graduating from SMU, Boston earned a M.A. in Leadership from Dallas Baptist University and was team captain of the DBU Men's Soccer team. Proceeding his completion of graduate school, Boston owned and operated his own protein supplement company, Honeybeard, which benefits veteran mental health organizations. Boston also has experience as a speaker and ambassador for other organizations that benefit Gold Star children.

Thrilled for the opportunity to serve NGS families and Recipients while heading up the mentorship program, overseeing communications and branding, and planning events, among other responsibilities, Boston is eager to help carry out NGS' vision of honoring the sacrifices of our Service members by investing in their children's capacity for greatness through education. Inspired by NGS' commitment to his own education and growth as he has traversed college and young adult life, he hopes to assist Recipients younger than him on their own life journey:

"I am hopeful my own experiences as a child affected by war, as an NGS Recipient, and as a product of the higher education system will serve me in my ability to connect with and support NGS Recipients and NGS Alumni as they write their own story. In addition, I hope my experiences as a small business owner will aid me in keeping up with the dynamic and fast-paced nature of nonprofit work as I and the rest of the NGS team work hard to deliver scholarships and resources to improve the quality of life of the children of our nation’s fallen and wounded Service members through the pursuit of higher education."
