The “military life” has always been home to me. Even though being a “civilian” myself, the honor and code of a Warrior was engrained in me from a young age. I was blessed to have a high standard set for me by my father and hero , US Army Sergeant First Class Roger Blair Scharmen, a Vietnam Veteran, who passed on June 29, 2021, after a courageous battle with Leukemia. It was his battle and passing that led me to Warriors Heart. He was a man of integrity, passion, and True Heart. The kind of Man, who showed all empathy and sympathy, and taught me to do the same. He never met a stranger and embraced everyone as a friend and family. Despite his own daily struggles and battles, till his dying day, his mission was to make all feel “at Home” with his huge heart, daily smiles, love, and words of encouragement. Warriors Heart was a mission he truly believed in and supported, and I wanted to be part of that, to honor him and keep his legacy alive, by doing the same. I, myself have struggled with PTSD, anxiety, and depression for many years. But I am a strong believer of hope and healing and hope to share that message with all. It is my Honor and privilege to serve here at Warriors Heart alongside others, just as passionate about The Mission as I am.
