Memorial day is a time to pause, reflect and remember those brave men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to secure our freedoms.
They are our true heroes and heroines – we will never forget you. And to our military personnel still serving, you are loved, cherished and respected. May your journey be safe and come home to us soon.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!
I was honored, along with my production partner in crime Henry Fayson, to receive this medal, The Commanders Award for Recognition of Excellence from the USC Army ROTC. Back in November of 2012, we filmed The USC Ranger’s Challenge in San Luis Obispo. And from that we were asked to film other challenges for the Army ROTC. It was a grueling shoot, we had to roll right along with the officer trainees in the cold, rain and mud. But it was also fascinating and brought a new perspective and respect on what it takes to be an officer in the US Army. Much love and thanks to USC, their exemplary staff and a special shout out to Col. John Kelly, 8th Brigade & Warrior Forge Commander. Hooah!
Today is Armed Forces Day and as a person who knows many friends and family who have served, I can only say — I’m proud of your strength, courage, character, bravery and sense of duty. You’ve served your country well and to those still serving, stay safe, be well, know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and come home soon.
