    9/11 Was the day my life changed forever, it took 3 years for me to get my crap together but in 2004 I enlisted. I am proud to have served in both Iraq and Afghanistan. I was wounded severely in 2009 and have been on the road to recovery since then. I will never be the person I was before I joined and I am proud to be the person I am now. If given the chance again and knowing I would be in the situation I am in I would stand up and volunteer all over again. I am proud to have the opportunity to serve my country and I am proud to have been part of an elite group that did some major things to further our freedom. As Veterans Day approaches I am honored to remember my teammates that paid the ultimate sacrifice and I am honored to have family members that stood up and answered the call as well. My father in law who at 17 signed up and was part of World War 2 before he was even 18. My grandfather who also was in World War two and paid the ultimate sacrifice, my father who was a Vietnam Veteran. May he rest in peace, I am humbled at the continued bravery and sense of purpose that most of my friends feel to protect this country and I am humbled to have been part of the US Military for the time that I was. Lets remember all of those who paid the price for us and those at home who are wounded and trying to put our lives together. I also wanted to say thank you to the cadre of Go Ruck, you all are giving folks an opportunity to do something life-changing. The experience of teamwork and unity and becoming something beyond ones self is an amazing feeling. I had the opportunity to do a Go Ruck Tough event this year and I would not have made it without the team of amazing men we had. Thanks for all you do and God Bless America!
