As the owner of a family owned business, I have seen many changes throughout Ft. Bragg & Fayetteville over the years. Ft. Bragg has had a great impact on Fayetteville not only throughout the private sector, but business as well. We pride ourselves on the fact we serve not only the citizens of Fayetteville, but the military community as well. We have been fortunate to have been in business as long as we have, and I felt the need and honor to give back to the military families that have given so much, not only to this community, but to this country.
I grew up hunting and fishing in western Pennsylvania before entering the Air Force in 1996 at the age of 18 from Pittsburgh, PA. I was initially an Avionics Guidance and Control Journeyman my first three years and then cross trained in to be a C-17A Loadmaster. I was a Loadmaster for 18 of my 21 years in the AF and spent 15 years in special operations aviation. My last 12 years of special ops service was spent right here at Pope AAF directly supporting SOF operations around the world. I have been involved with Patriot Hunts since 2015 and it has given me the opportunity to continue supporting SOF warriors through the brotherhood of the outdoors.
