When Erich Orrick came home from the Army after 12 years of service, he made it his mission to help other soldiers who were coming home too. But what Orrick, 44, the father of two girls, did not know was that his community had become well aware of all his good deeds — and so had the Indianapolis Colts’ Pat McAfee, who’d met Orrick through Orrick’s charity organization. “He’s the most selfless person I’ve ever met in my life,” McAfee said in an interview with the IndyStar.
