jasonWithin my very tight knit community of Recon Marines, Scout/Snipers and SARCS, these are words you never want to hear and, at the same time, wish you would hear more often.  It is not uncommon to see a request in a Facebook post or get a text that says simply: “I need a brother…”  When these words are passed,  dozens, if not scores of Marines and Sailors drop what they are doing and reach out to take care of the one in need.  Sometimes it is just someone to talk with…sometimes it is more.  It doesn’t matter.  Responding to these simple words may mean the difference between life and death.

Last weekend another Marine in our very small group took his own life.  This has happened far to frequently for a group of our size and has become far too common.  (more…)

rudyreyesultimatesurvivalalaskaI am always proud when my Marine brothers and sisters excel!  There are few Marines who have done better than my friend Rudy Reyes. You have likely read about him in the book Generation Kill or watched him in the mini-series of the same name (in which he played himself).  He has also been in Ultimate Survival Alaska and numerous other roles.  Today I learned that Rudy was going to play the lead role in “Inside Fighter” and “John Came Home”.  The film is currently in production and is looking for more funding!  If you are so inclined…think about contributing to the project. Read more about the film here.

50% of profits from John Came Home go to “The Raider Project”  As stated on their website: ”

“The Raider Project is a non-profit organization based out of Holly Ridge, NC. Our mission is to connect with MARSOC and Reconnaissance veterans to help them transition smoothly, peacefully and successfully into the private sector. We do this through PTSD and TBI counseling, unconventional brain treatments for disorders of the brain and central nervous system, short term financial assistance, resume coaching and small business support, get-away retreats and fishing trips as well as community sports programs.”
