Welcome to My Personal Page
All my life I was surrounded by people who have served this country. It was a given that I would too. However, just after I turned 18, a broken back put a halt to those dreams. No recruiter would take a guy with a crack in his spine.
The “guilt” I had stayed with me.I found things here and there to support our fallen and our vets.
8 years ago I stumbled on an article about former Navy Seal Clint Bruce and his personal struggle with Memorial Day. The article spoke of how he was starting an event called Carry the Load. I was all in!
That first year 200 people participated. I walked 52 miles with 45 lbs on my back in 24 hours. It was the hardest thing I ever did, mentally and physically. I couldn’t wait to do it again the next year.
Fast forward a few years. My son had an Air Force veteran as a 3rd grade teacher A great man, patriot, and teacher. I told him about the event, and the rest is history.
