It's a Good Thing You're Tough
My father said this to my siblings and I often, when we felt life was hard. There was always plenty of sympathy when we were really hurting, but for most things, all we needed was the reminder that we were tough and that everything would be ok.
I lost my father, Gregg Andres, a year ago. He served in the United States Marine Corps during the The Vietnam War, and he suffered from PTSD most of his life after he returned. Team IAGTYT will be completing Tough Mudder Tahoe 2016 to benefit Wounded Warrior Project in his memory.
