Hello and greetings to all,
Thank you for your assistance in helping me raise money to help our Warriors, family members, and loved ones deal with the invisible wounds of war. The program at Home Base is near and dear to me as I partake in the Warrior Health and Fitness program. Whatever distance I have to run or walk in training and during the Boston Marathon pales in comparision to what many of our Veterans and their familes endure on a daily basis. The opportunity to help a fellow servicemember is the least that I can do.
A little about me. I am a southerner with great mid-western roots (cold weather and I don't mix yet, but that is about to change.) I am an Army Veteran. I served as an Engineer Officer during my 10 plus years on active duty including, a tour in Iraq and a tour in Afghanistan. After returning from Iraq over a decade ago, my best friend and I decided to train for our first half marathon. It was a great experience and led me to run in several other races over the past decade. While I enjoyed every race I ran in, something was/ is missing. How do I challenge myself and how can I help my fellow Veterans at the same time. Running for Home Base is the answer.
