I have a strong desire to give back to the servicemen/women (and the families) who sacrifice their lives for our personal freedom. I believe in the Lone Survivor Foundation’s mission to restore, empower, and renew hope for our wounded service members and their families through health, wellness, and therapeutic support. I am truly honored and humbled to be a part of the Lone Survivor Team in its efforts to further this mission.
