I am very interested in helping veterans. Mainly, because I have a lot of family members that are veterans and I myself, am a twenty-two year retired veteran of the ARNG. I understand the sacrifices made by soldiers and their families, after my own divorce and deployments. I have also been impacted by veteran suicide, which the details of, shall remain anonymous. It is something that weighs heavily on my heart and in my mind daily. After I decided to retire into the Reserve Retired status, I took a few months to reflect on what would come next in my life. I decided to join Team Rubicon and soon there after, I joined Team Red, White and Blue because I really needed to get out there and do more. After a few months with Team Rubicon, I applied for the position of a State Programs Coordinator for AL, which is now called the State Engagement Coordinator (EnCor) for AL and I was selected for this role. Now, this is how I give back now. I try to create events that help other veterans get out there and become involved in their communities and to also be able to participate in disaster response operations known as OPs (i.e., OP- Palmetto Punch, OP-Delta Blues, etc.). Run As One is a very important event to me because it represents so many important veteran issues, to include the remembrance Clay Hunt and the significance of his life. All funds raised through this campaign will go to three wonderful organizations: Team Rubicon, Team RWB and The Mission Continues, who provide support and opportunities for veterans. Thank you for taking the time to read my story and also, your consideration of a small donation is much appreciated. You're Awesome!
