texasmwade This is Jimmy Murillo, the soldier that my last post was about. I just want to clear up any confusion about the situation. In my last post, I mistakenly said that he died while on duty. That was my mistake, and I apologize for that! It's very sad, but he actually took his own life after getting out of the military. PTSS (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) is a very real thing and in some cases our troops bring home much deeper wounds mentally than they do physically. This is the reason his family needs the financial & moral support, and it's also why there isn't much help from the military for his memorial service. I apologize for the confusion, but this is not a scam like some have suggested it might be. If you would like to help out please contact Patricia Flores at (806)-549-1093 for any more info you might need. The Paypal account that they have set up for people to donate to is murillojust@yahoo.com please help out if you can, they are trying to raise 13k for a private funeral service for his family and friends. $1000 is all they have so far. If 1000 people donate $12 each it will be covered! Anything helps! Please share this! Thanks! #spcjimmymurillo 7h

  •   mr_jim_shorts_ My brother is living it... It is very sad to see.. People don't understand what these men and women go threw to defend our freedom. I served but never went to war. So many homeless people suffer from it as well. 6h
  •   chris_falk RIP 6h
  •   aliciaqphoto If anyone talks to the family @texasmwade , tell them to start a GoFundMe page. That website is legit and will allow people to feel comfortable making donations. Not to mention sharing a link with the story and photos on the GoFundMe is super easy and convenient :) 6h
  •   dangilbert85 I live with it (PTSD) everyday. It's ruff, and even ruffed at times. It's terrible on relationships, I know my wife hates what I go trough with it, and sometimes it gets pushed on to her unintentionally, and then it compiles what ever it is that has me worked up and I feel worse. If you have friends, or relatives that suffer from this, just keep your patients and don't judge them for the actions they take, everyone handles it differently. 6h

texasmwade Wanna say thank you to a Vet? Help his family give him a proper memorial service. Jimmy Murrillo has fallen in service to all of us, and his family needs help financially. As you can read above they are $12,000 short and need to raise this amount by Friday for his funeral. If a thousand people give $12 it will be covered! If you can help out contact Patricia Flores at the number above or @andrewwadenunn can give you more info and steer you in the right direction to help out! His email is andrew@awnphotography.com #spcjimmymurrillo #helpneeded Please repost this! #spreadtheword 16h
  •   texasmwade @dorian_bmx I'm sure you can, email Andrew@awnphotography.com or call the number in the photo to get the details. 15h

  •   twick2410 If he died in service, expenses should be covered. I'm confused on this one. 14h
  •   andrewwadenunn @texasmwade thank you from the bottom of my heart for passing this along. For clarification, he got out of the army last year and died of causes "unrelated" to his military service - being suicide. The VA issues a $350.00 death benefit that will cover putting his dead body in a pine box and burial in a VA cemetery. His family however wants a private service. Please contact his family directly - 806-549-1093 13h
  •   texasmwade @twick2410 & @andrewwadenunn I apologize for the confusion. I didn't know all the specifics, but I don't have to. Some wounds from service run deep and have very long lasting effects and unfortunately sometimes lead to situations like this. It's very sad, but I hope we as a nation can come through for hurting families like the Murrillo family and help pick them back up and support them for what they've lost! 13h
  •   terribleo1 Thanks for posting Morgan! Gonna email them shortly. Always down to help my brothers and sisters in arms! 13h
  •   chris_falk Pts affects more soldiers than any other ailment R.I.P. lest we forget 10h

  •   ronan_bmx Nice 2d
  •   texasmwade @ericosullivan haha na, we had a time limit, but both Baz and I agreed to stop because we both felt like we were maxing it out for the speed we could get on that setup. We were both cool with the tie so that was that! 1d

texasmwade So there's this "Cold Water Challenge" going around Facebook and my friend @understr challenged me to jump into cold water within 24 hours or give a charity of his choice $100 bucks. I have no problem donating to charity, but a challenge is a challenge! This is how I chose to jump in! Haha I challenged my old roommate Chris Rollins, his wife Sarah Rollins, and my buddy Paul Landreth-Smith to do the same, my charity being The Wounded Warrior Project! : @themonsterjarengrob

  •   andrewwadenunn I'm really glad that the BMX community has dudes like you to look up to. I do have a tremendous amount of respect for you. 3d
  •   texasmwade @andrewwadenunn well that's too bad on all accounts, and I'm bummed to hear that! The groups that I've had the pleasure of interacting with have been quite the opposite of what you just described! So at least they are doing what they should be which is exactly what you just explained should be happening! It's a bummer that you've been on the crappy end of that stick man! I know it's impossible to help everyone, and I know that there are always going to be those people that take advantage of a good cause for their own personal gain, but I can only go by what I have seen with my own eyes. I take every chance I get to support and give gratitude to our servicemen & women, even if it's something as small as holding a door shaking their hand and saying thanks as they walk past. I don't doubt that you've done research, and/or had bad experiences with the WWP, but I think it's pretty lame to just discount and write the whole thing off as a scam when they have and are doing a lot of awesome things for our veterans. 3d
  •   texasmwade Thanks man, Myself, along with many many other Americans that support you guys, will never have the authority to speak first hand on any of these things like you and the rest of our veterans, because we simply didn't have to go though any of it first hand, but we can help and be supportive when and where we can. There are a lot of great people involved in the WWP, it's a shame to have it tainted in any way. 3d
  •   adamadey Thank you for your continued support. God bless. 3d
  •   giulianspizzirri Dude its awesome u do the things u do, i bmx as well and i wish i could be as good as u..... Hopefully one day i will be. The bmx comunity is awesome and i hope u shred for many more years 3d
  •   understr Great response! I guess that will count for both you and @nataliebwade :) 3d
  •   r3v3rt Thanks @texasmwade for being a posotove and loud voice of support for those who give so much! 2d
  •   r3v3rt ...and positive too lol 2d

texasmwade This right here is my dream gun setup @bulletslinger! I love this all American @alzev slide/barrel combo but threaded for @silencerco fun. Add in the @zevtech Fulcrum Trigger set and a full @boresightsolutions grip package and that would be that!! Of course I'd need a bad a$$ BulletSlinger holster to go with it too! So if anyone needs any ideas for my birthday in July??!! Hahaha Thanks for ruining me by introducing me to this stuff @mikealand! The wish lists go on and on! Hahaha 1w

texasmwade I found a whole bunch of old photos last night! Here's one that @sandy_carson shot at the @t1ers ramp back in 2005 I think. Dip 360 from the spine into the steep roller wedge. That ramp is in my top three of best ramps of all time! @empirebmx 2w
  •   sandy_carson Did @daveybaco shot this? Hahaha 1w
  •   texasmwade @holdonherewego Eisenbergs "W" ramp and the 7ft spine ramp in outdoor street at Woodward in PA. The Braun Ramp is up there too but I've only ridden it at two contests so it's a little lower on the totem pole! And you sir are a genius when it comes to ramp building! Always a treat to ride your masterpieces! 1w
  •   texasmwade @sandy_carson hahaha hey!!! I tagged you in this one and got it right! haha 1w

texasmwade Thrashed my bike over the last week at the #dbnothingbutfun party at @joyride150! I went ahead and left them a little keepsake! Haha "This frame has been all over the world, was the first frame to make it all the way through RedBull's Dreamline course, and has won an XGames Gold medal! I guess a week at Joyride150 was just too much for it! I can't wait to come back!
Thanks"
