In January of 2015 I had the opportunity to visit the National Museum of the Air Force for the dedication of a new display honoring the TACP career field. The display case has uniforms, berets, pictures, and a few other assorted items that belonged to me and my teammate Senior Airman Brad Smith who was killed in the ambush on our patrol. It was a very emotional ceremony as you can probably imagine and you can watch the entire thing below.
My guide dog Xxon is one of my best friends. If you’ve spent time with or around me you probably know that. We go just about everywhere together and it’s been amazing.
What most people don’t know is the story about the two organizations that made Xxon a reality for me and my family. The video below will teach you all about two amazing organizations that I’ve been blessed to become associated with. They are like family to us now.
While attending an event for the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation in Connecticut I had the opportunity to sit down with the very well known Ann Nyberg and talk about my experiences from Afghanistan until now. This interview gives a great look into my life and story.
Our thanks go out to Ann Nyberg and everyone else at WTNH.
In March of 2012 I got to get back on the ski slopes thanks to the United States Association of Blind Athletes and Anthem Life. I grew up snowboarding and this was my first opportunity to try it without my vision. I refused to let the loss of my sight stop me from doing what I love.
