The Weekend to Remember in Middletown, Ohio is all about a local community coming together to welcome veterans home. The Fastrax and Halo for Freedom volunteers sponsored tandem skydiving jumps, a shooting competition, airboat bow fishing, a balloon festival, a carnival for the community and kids, and finally a Cincinnati Reds game. I spoke to veterans about overcoming their own adversity, seeking help for PTSD, and tried to lead them to their own spirituality. I encouraged education and community unity. During my presentation, I spoke on my injuries, the loss, the recovery and finally the salvation I found in my journey from hospital bed to independence.
