“Every day above ground is a blessing and a privilege. My life goal is to give back to the world as much as it has given me.”
I enjoy spending time out in the woods, hiking, riding ATV’s, hunting, and fishing. My family is my #1 priority, so anything I can do with them has become a hobby.
A no holds barred look at what it really means to be a Veteran. This book is intended to be a Veteran’s perspective on Veterans; Alex's truth about Veterans from one Veterans perspective. Alex delves into the complexities of what it actually means to be a Veteran and how the term has become so misused in our common culture, which has negatively affected so many people that have served. Not only will the reader journey through a 17 year Military career, but will learn what the Military culture and "brotherhood" is all about.
