Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in the USAF from 1986 to 1990 in Alaska then served in the DE Air National Guard from 1996 to 2012 with service in 2007 in Afghanistan.
How are you #StillServing?
I help facilitate a Peer Support Group for Veterans and First Responders in our community.
Why do you do it?
I do this because I know how suffering in silence feels. I want to give others an outlet for their stresses. As a volunteer first responder for 30 years and a military vet I understand that there are plenty of things we need to share to get off our chests but can’t share at home or often with “polite company”. What we have seen and done is just too much for most to handle. Having a safe place to talk, vent, and feel part of a group of brothers and sisters again is important. If we can stop just one of the 22 a day then we have helped!
