I am running for SSG Mark Allen Stets who I lost on deployment to the Middle East . Mark was a great coach and mentor to me , he is loved and missed by many across the world . He touched lives in such a way that it is impossible to forget that down to earth and humorous attitude . Please read below for the even details and your contributions are greatly appreciated !
