Memorial Day is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service to the nation.  As we move into the Memorial Day Holiday, please take a moment to think about those who have served the nation and, in the process, paid the ultimate sacrifice.


I personally would like to remember all of my friends who have sacrificed and those who have given their lives serving the nation who include Matt August, Josh Byers, Doug Dicenzo, Mark Paine, Eric Paliwoda, Michael MacKinnon, Tommy Schoales, Ian Weikel, and Phil Esposito who the Freedom’s Light Charity Program is dedicated to.


This year, I intend to do something a bit different than in the past. Before launching into my training plan for the Westchester Toughman, I will be joining several friends from Stony Point Dental to compete in the June 2nd Spartan Race. Personally, I am very excited about the race. It helps me honor those who have passed by recommitting myself to our shared values of being physically fit, mentally strong, and morally straight.


On June 3rd, we launch our Hero’s Journey action plans! Stay fired up!!


Until then…


God Bless,
