My family and I, along with CSM Paul Bianco, were invited by American 300 Tours to Wrangler’s National Patriot Night at the PBR World Finals in Las Vegas, NV. American 300 is a charitable and educational organization run completely by volunteers in partnership with the Department of Defense Armed Forces Entertainment division and MWR to bring motivational programs to troops. They are committed to the theme of “Americans Honoring America’s Heroes.” We met some of the most amazing folks in the rodeo world, and were so proud to be included in this world-class event at the Thomas and Mack Center!
I spoke with cadets from the JROTC programs at Rudder and Bryan High Schools on Oct. 16th at BHS. What an amazing group of young people. Ready to serve. They welcomed me with pride and humility! On Friday, I was a guest at TAMU and got to shake hands with a four-legged friend, Reveille, before signing books at the Aggie 100 event. Friday afternoon, I signed books at Barnes and Noble, thanks to Mandy Espericueta, Community Business Development Manager, and spent time with many friends in the Brazos Valley. A blessed week, for sure!
I was invited to attend the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation’s gala weekend, honoring recipients of the MOH as well as Texas Governor Rick Perry who was honored guest and recipient of the foundation’s Patriot Award. It was an all-star benefit, with both Perry and Greg Abbott reinforcing our need to support today’s veterans in the workforce.

Mizzen and Main has developed clothing with “breathable technology” so burn guys like me or folks who are simply “too hot to handle” can wear something that looks cool! They use advanced performance fabric that’s moisture wicking and keeps you dry and comfortable in every situation. No ironing, no dry cleaning -which I appreciate! There’s more to the good news, though. This is a company that is committed to keeping their products American made –they even kicked off a program called “Shirt for a Start” to both hire veterans and give paid job training opportunities to them with exposure to the startup world and experience in logistics, design, sales, and more. This program can make a tremendous, direct impact helping transition veterans to the civilian workforce. They also donate and fundraise to give back on a consistent basis, including partnerships with the Navy SEAL Foundation and One Team One Fight. Please support this great company at mizzenandmain.com
I’ll be speaking on Daystar TV- check your local listings, about Steel Will. Daystar Television Network is an award-winning, faith-based network. We hope to reach many listeners with a singular message: Support our veterans!
I had the opportunity to spend a week in September 2014 with the American300 Foundation tour in Minot, ND. Imagine my surprise when I changed planes in the Denver airport and found our first copy of Steel Will on the bookstore shelves. That was awesome! I had a wonderful adventure, and I need to give a shout out to all the amazing airmen at Minot AFB. Rob Powers with American300 really helped reinforce why I do what I do. Shout out to Jen Housholder for her music and stories. We shared our tales and thanked these extremely professional men and women for their service. If anyone’s wondering, our country is ready. They showed me what readiness looks like, and I have the highest regard for the jobs they do everyday.
American300 recognizes these U.S. Armed Forces members who protect our freedom. A 100% volunteer organization, the foundation tour visits the troops, giving them a chance to connect with home while they enjoy a change of pace from the tensions of active duty. It’s a source of physical and mental release that is as good for their bodies as well as for their spirits. I know it was good for mine.
KAMO Adventures believes in providing a safe, supportive, and friendly environment where wounded U.S. service members can assist each other in the healing process, both mentally and physically. Through outdoor hunting experiences unique to each wounded veteran’s needs and abilities, KAMO is dedicated to serving and honoring our returning wounded heroes. On August 24th, I’ll be speaking at the American Legion Post 370 in Overland Park, KS, about the importance of supporting our veterans. Come and join us!
I’m excited to announce that Kathreyn and I have been invited to appear on The Mike Huckabee Show on Fox News. We’ll travel to New York City on the 6th, so be sure to tune in or set your DVR/TIVO to record this session. It should air numerous times; check your local listings. The producers of the Huckabee Show loved their advanced review copy of the book, and Kat and I are honored to be given this unique opportunity to bear witness to what freedom costs. It’s also a welcome opportunity to reveal what God has done in our lives, and to expose millions of viewers to the many needs of the warrior community. Veterans in the workplace, on the homefront, and in our communities and churches need our support now more than ever!
This grassroots movement is rapidly expanding to provide chiropractic care to all active military, wounded warriors, and their families. Their motto is “They Served…We Support” and they are doing just that. On August 5-8, 2014, I’ll join the warrior community in Canton, Ohio for a celebration dubbed “Heroes Don’t Wear Capes”. On the 6th at 6:00 PM, we’ll meet at Hoover Park, where I’ll join several Medal of Honor recipients and a proud Navy Seal in speaking to the patriotic citizens of Canton!
