My Why: James Trimble

I spent much of my youth wondering what I wanted to do with my life. When I graduated high school, I felt like I had a world of possibilities and all that I had to do was make a decision.

My Why: Tim Whitehouse

Our Military, Law Enforcement, Firefighters, First Responders, and Civilian Warriors make great sacrifices for our country every day. They experience traumatic events which the regular public simply can’t understand. That’s why I feel passionately that our Warriors should be receiving the support they deserve so they can continue serving our country in whatever capacity they choose. I am humbled and honored to be with Warriors Heart where I can continue serving my fellow Warriors.
