Marine Staff Sergeant Thomas Charles Linville (Charlie) enlisted in the Marine Corps 2006, and shortly hereafter married his high school sweetheart Mandi. They have two daughters.
Charlie's served multiple tours in both Iraq and Afganistan. It was in the latter, while serving as an Ordinance Disposal Technician - he and his team rendered safe multiple IED’s, disposed of explosives both “homemade” and conventional ammunition - that Charlie was struck by a tertiary device. The explosion inflicted multiple injuries on him, some visible others not. He suffered fractures to his right foot which resulted in an inevitable amputation below the knee. In addition, Charlie suffered the amputations of his right ring and middle fingers. In addition, the blast caused a severe spinal injury at the L4, L5 and S1, which caused radiculopathy in his left leg impairing his mobility, and moderate traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Charlie’s injuries have impaired him but he is determined to return to full functionality. Despite his injuries and debilitating pain, he has volunteered his time with the Armed Services YMCA building houses with Habitat for Humanity and volunteering with Feed America. He has also volunteered with Lives of Promise and Semper Fi Fund. He is an advocate for other wounded warriors, a spokesperson for many of the non-profits that supported him during healing, and an inspiring community leader. He is medically retired from active duty as an EOD Tech and has turned his focus on regaining function in his back as well as improved mobility. Currently he is training rigorously to climb Mount Everest in the spring of 2014. Following his successful summit, Charlie plans to attend Boise State University through the Wyakin Warrior Foundation. He will seek a degree in Engineering.

ABOUT BLIND DESCENT:
Alone and blind at 29,000 feet!
Former Navy rescue swimmer Brian Dickinson was roughly 1,000 feet from the summit of Mount Everest—also known as “the death zone”—when his Sherpa became ill and had to turn back, leaving Brian with a difficult decision: should he continue to push for the summit, or head back down the mountain? After carefully weighing the options, Brian decided to continue toward the summit—alone. Four hours later, Brian solo summited the highest peak in the world. But the celebration was short-lived. After taking a few pictures, Brian radioed his team to let them know he had summited safely, and got ready to begin his descent. Suddenly, his vision became blurry, his eyes started to burn, and within seconds, he was rendered almost completely blind. All alone at 29,035 feet, low on oxygen, and stricken with snow blindness, Brian was forced to inch his way back down the mountain relying only on his Navy survival training, his gut instinct, and his faith. In Blind Descent, Brian recounts—in fantastic detail—his extraordinary experience on Everest, demonstrating that no matter how dire our circumstances, there is no challenge too big for God.
Garrett Madison is America's premier Everest guide, having personally stood on the top of the world with 27 clients over the last 4 years, more than any other American guide. Garrett Madison successfully led the 2012 Alpine Ascents Everest team to the summit of Everest on May 20th, being the only climbers to summit that day, and without any injuries. Earlier on the evening of May 19th, 6 climbers lost their lives near the summit (North & South routes combined) as the weather turned and they were not able to make it back to high camp. As the 2011 Alpine Ascents International Everest and Lhotse Expedition Leader, Garrett led the first ever successful expedition where climbers successfully reached the summit of two 8000 meter peaks in less than 24 hours. During this historic climb Garrett also personally guided one of the climbers peak to peak in 21 hours. This expedition resulted in 100% climber success on Everest and the first ever success in climbing and guiding the Everest-Lhotse combination peak to peak.Garrett has been Expedition Manager and overseen guiding operations at Alpine Ascents International since 2007. Previously he had guided for Rainier Mountaineering Inc. since 1999 and other international guiding companies.Garrett Madison's other guided climbs include ascents on many of the 7 summits as well as other notable peaks such as the Ecuador Volcanoes, the Mexico Volcanoes, peaks in Peru (Cordillera Blanca), etc. Garrett's guiding resume includes an impressive list: 8 expeditions to Aconcagua, 3 to Denali, 5 to Vinson, 2 to Kilimanjaro, 5 to Mexico, 5 to Everest along with other expeditions in the Himalaya, and over 165 ascents of Mt. Rainier!Garrett is proud to translate his leadership and mountaineering feats into motivational speaking, presenting on topics such as Team Building, Perseverance, Leadership, and Managing Risk.
It's that time of year when everyone is on the hunt for the school supply list, the teacher wish list; and, that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle backpack that Target had online but can't locate in the store (oh wait, that's MY challenge at the moment).
Seriously, this time of year for many is filled with excitement but for children who learn differently and their parents--there is often very little to be excited about as the fights about homework resume.
According to a 2010 report from the National Center for Learning Disabilities, nearly 2.4 million students are diagnoised with LD and receive special education services in schools.
For parents trying to navigate this educational maze to obtain help for their child, it is often described as the equivilent of attempting to climb Mt. Everest in flipflops.
What do you need to know to advocate effectively for your child? What is an IEP? Who is eligible for a 504 plan? Is there really a difference between a 504 Plan and an IEP? What are the first steps in the IEP process? Does it really speed up the process to get your child tested outside of the school system? What are some types of things you as a parent or guardian can ask to have included in the IEP? We're going to cover all of this and more!
If you have a child that you believe may need extra help in school to thrive then this show is for you!
We will have Licensed Psychologist Dr. Arcella Trimble as our guest to help navigate the waters on Educational Advocacy 101 for Parents and Guardians as well as blogger Karen Wesley Weaver.
Karen's blog, Confessions of An Asperger's Mom (http://confessionsofanaspergersmom.blogspot.com/) has been featured on Mamapedia and is listed on the Top Mommy Blogs http://www.topmommyblogs.com (yes, please go vote for Confessions of An Asperger's Mom).
