I am the Troop Committee Chairman for LDS-BSA Troop 98. I served two tours to Iraq and was injured during 03-04 with a broken wrist. I returned 04-05 where I partially fractured my lower vertebrae, herniated a disc in my neck and fell victim to TBI due to the several IEDs and firefights that beset my platoon. I was medically retired in 2010 as a Sergeant First Class in the United States Army.
I must say, never have I felt such love and care as I did tonight. The truly selfless act of kindness revitalized a spark of joy. I have not received a token of such value for my service as I have from this foundation. Thank you. I beg that I may have the opportunity to serve in a capacity to which I may share with others the joy this brings to scarred warriors.
