After seeing a flash into my chosen path, I decided to follow my mother’s footsteps into a war zone, Operation Iraqi Freedom. I took a job as a contractor in Iraq at 22 years old and jumped in blind, having no idea the consequences of my actions, good or bad.


Iraq turned out to be my “university” and taught me how to be relentless. Once in Iraq I had an epiphany during my first mortar attack and took action. Through the four years of my contracting service, I explored new parts of who I was, and who I wanted to become, the Badass you know today.


Stay Relentless,

- Christmas Abbott
