I have had multiple brothers from the Army commit suicide. I have always felt like I could have done more to prevent it. In my own experience, I know there are times that feel hopeless. Fortunately I have a good support group in my family. As a member of Veterans 3 Gun I have the opportunity to reach out to more veterans and let them realize that it’s not hopeless and there are people that care.

I spent a little over 9 years active Army. I have done two combat deployments, one in Iraq and one in Afghanistan. I am currently a Sheriff’s Deputy. I am also one of two people in the department trained to responding to veterans in crisis.
