Sharing My Thoughts About Armed Services Arts Partnership

ARMED SERVICES ARTS PROGRAM (ASAP) EMPOWERS VETERANS AND MILITARY FAMILIES TO THRIVE IN THEIR COMMUNITIES THROUGH ARTS CLASSES AND PERFORMANCES.

Here I am sharing my thoughts about the program and playing a small role as an advisor. This was filmed at The White House BTW. Pretty cool!

Armed Services Arts Partnership

Very honored to be able to play a small part in a really impressive organization.  If I’ve learned anything over the years, it’s important to be there for people.

Veterans Coming Home put together a short piece from a night I got to perform with some real American heroes now performing stand-up comedy thanks to The Armed Services Arts Partnership. I am on the ASAP advisory committee and have fortunately gotten to spend time with a few of the Comedy Bootcamp graduates. It’s a really special non-profit making positive things happen for our Veterans, Active Military & their families.

Face Of America Ride

Take a minute… only a minute. Watch this short video that really captures the bike ride I participated in this past weekend. At the 37 second mark you can see the smiles on all of our faces. Every once in a while I catch myself living in pure joy. That state is impossible to maintain, but I promise you that if you spend time with individuals that inspire, overcome & live beyond themselves, you will feel it. Life isn’t about you or me. It’s about us. I’m beyond happy to be part of the World T.E.A.M. Sports family. It’s life changing!

G.I. Jokes: From Combat Zone To Comedy Zone

The All Warrior Network created a short documentary about U.S. Army Veteran and now comedian Justin Wood’s inspirational story. I got to play a small part in his journey. Our friendship and Veteran loyalty is captured extremely well. It’s a positive, funny & heartfelt story. You can’t ask for much more than that. Enjoy!

VETERANS DAY: Lucky One

My military service is very far in my rear view mirror. I know my story and, more importantly, what it means to me. Since my time in the service, I’ve heard, befriended and in a small fashion been a part of many other veteran’s stories. Men and women who have sacrificed a great deal more while in uniform then I can even imagine, but all experiences I know are reality.

I owe so much to this group of people and I’m lucky to maintain a connection to them. My personal cost did not add up to much and I’m fully aware of how fortunate that is. It’s part of why I never feel any need to be thanked – my time in the military was really good to and for me.

Saying “thank you” feels more right to me. Thank you to all those who have had so much taken from them while serving under the very same colors as I did. I live my life for you and I will continue to do the best I can.

Happy Veterans Day!
