! Long post please read ! So today I turn 33, at this point it has been a crazy ride. With the support God first and my family and friends I get to see another birthday. I need to say a couple things to a couple people. To my wife thank you PTSD is not an easy thing to live with and as hard as it is for me it’s probably twice as hard for you. Thank you for loving me.
To my powerlifting family joe Baxter at revolution and everyone at iron mafia epically Mark and Shana you all saved my life if you know it or not. If I would have lost interest in powerlifting before I went into the hospital last year I might not have made it out. Powerlifting has saved my life. To my team of USS athletes understand that I am trying to pass every part of knowledge that I learn to you. Not just on the platform but also in life.
To the Military Muscle FaMM thank you for giving me a shot. I am not cured of PTSD but I can help people that have similar issues my goal is not to be the strongest powerlifter (although there are totals that I will beat before I stop competing in this sport ) My goal is to teach powerlifting and weight lifting to athletes of all ages with veterans and military as a primary focus. I want to teach the benefit of powerlifting and the effects on ptsd and depression. Military Muscle has given me a start a platform that I can use to save lives. Thank you for that.
