“I was in the Marines for 4 years and it was the best time of my life. I learned more about myself and what I could do as a person than I could have in any other environment. The people I met all became lifelong friends and I could not imagine not knowing them. The reason I believe Reviresco, Inc. is important is because I met a lot of civilians who were not pro-military while I was active. I did not believe that anyone would not be in support of the men and women who sacrifice so much for our freedoms, but I had many people refer to me as a killer or as if I had no emotion simply because of my profession. Through the work of organizations like Reviresco, Inc. we can work towards a future where everyone respects and appreciates the losses that some take to make sure everyone has a chance to live how they see fit.”
