We are an American Gold Star Family that have dedicated our lives to honoring our fallen heroes and supporting those that made it home. It has been nearly 10 years since we last saw our son Nick. He gave us all big hugs and headed off for war in Afghanistan. On July 23, 2009, he was killed in combat going to the aid of his brother Marines during Operation Strike of the Sword. He rests in peace back home on his beloved Cape Cod forever young at age 21. His last words to us were, "Don't worry about me mom, I'm Living the Dream." We dedicate Falmouth Road Race 2019 to his memory and will raise money that will go to help a Veteran and their Family...live their dream.
