I can't believe we have made it this far. Two years ago I was being involuntarily separated from the Marine Corps due to service limitations and was beyond nervous and worried that I wouldn’t be able to provide for my wife and kids. I feel extremely lucky and blessed to be doing what I love. I can’t stress enough to my friends and family that we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for their help and support. This is only the beginning!
