I’m certain my parents, the fine community in which I grew up, as well as years in the Catholic church prepared me for life as an honorable citizen…yet for some reason I was not applying myself. However, when I reached the military and they helped me hit the “reboot” button, I was able to re-start (just like a computer) but this time with all the programs up and running, from honor, integrity to hard work and beyond. In other words, the military made me a man or empowered me to be one (I think this experience is similar for most of us who serve).
I was equally fortunate to go on from the infantry into Special Operations, starting with the 75th Ranger Regiment, which to this day is like my second father, mother and brother. The skills, camaraderie and dedication required to survive and thrive in such an environment is now inherent within my DNA and for this I am forever grateful. More specifically, or because of this virtue, I am totally dedicated to return the favor.
Most of us at GallantFew know we are the lucky ones…because we still have all, or most of our body parts, and our soul as well as our minds mostly intact (lol)…but some of our brothers paid more of a sacrifice and therefore we shall be there for them in return. GF is the vehicle in which we pay it forward.
