I grew up hunting and fishing in Eastern Iowa along the Mississippi River, at 18 I joined the Army to carry on the family tradition of serving our great nation. In 2011, after 20+ years I retired. In 2014, I became a member of the Pro-Staff for Patriot Hunts. I am an avid outdoorsman and I enjoy introducing our Combat Veterans and Gold Star children to the outdoors. Veterans as well as the children easily find the outdoors as a form a therapy. I am married to Paula Nash and have 3 children, Olivia, Madison and Dakota.
