It's that time again. On 19 April 20 I will participate in the Tough Ruck in Concord, MA. The ruck is 26.2 miles in full uniform carrying 35 lbs. We ruck in honor of, and to raise much needed funds for the families of Servicemembers and First Responders killed in the line of duty. This will be my 7th and final 26.2 mile ruck in uniform as I am retiring later this year. I ask that if it is at all possible, consider saluting my 29 years of service, and the tremendous sacrifice of heroes like my deceased friends MSG Thomas Wallsmith and CPT Dan Whitten, with a donation to my GoFundMe. If you are not able to donate, please think of me on 19 April and think or our fallen heroes whenever you see the flag or hear the anthem. I feel very blessed that I was able to return safely from 7 combat deployments and although they leave me forever changed, I will never take for granted that I am able to enjoy my friends and family while many others cannot. Thank you for your consideration!
