Veterans At SeaThe purpose of the “Operation Restore Hope – Retreat” program is to significantly enhance the lives of
wounded veterans, their families and caregivers through self-care and peer support. Achieving this purpose ...
will also have a direct effect on the communities where these families live, by reducing the high risk of family
crisis from mental or physical injuries that in the past has led to domestic violence, divorce or suicide.
The Need:The decade-long wars in Iraq and Afghanistan have been experienced not only on the battlefield, but also back

in Iraq and Syria will only add to the current problems these families have.
I am a native Texan and in 1990 I graduated from Southwest High School in Fort Worth, TX. After high school I went to MCRD San Diego, while in the Marine Corps I served as a Heavy Gunner in Weapons Company 3rd Battalion 1st Marines. While I was assigned to 3/1 I took and passed the Indoct for Recon. Upon completion of my deployment with 3/1 I went to 1st Recon Battalion where I served as a Point Man/Navigator in a six-man Recon Team and also as training cadre for Indocts and RIP Classes. I was honorably discharged from the Marines in ’96.After the Marines I got a job working on Commercial and Industrial Boilers and in 2004 one of the boilers I was working on exploded on me and I sustained a TBI and SCI C1-C6. I spent several years in recovery at places like Craig Institute in Colorado, Centre for Neuro Skills in California, several local hospitals and home. During this time I had to learn how to read and understand or comprehend what I just read as well as how to do math again. Not to mention many other life skills old and new that many of us take for granted on a daily basis.
