    A Royal Marine veteran will row, yes row, a boat 3,000 miles to help us increase awareness about this debilitating problem that can be solved when we take the right approach. The Kraken came from the deep in the dark void - PTS(D) does the same.

    Casey Alan Owens hailed from the Houston/Katy Texas. After 9/11 he felt a calling to fulfill his duty to God and country and joined the USMC. Casey served two combat deployments to Iraq and on September 20, 2004, Casey was hit by a double stacked IED. Casey suffered life threatening injuries resulting in the amputation of both legs, severe TBI and PTS(D). Even then Casey completed 3 Marine Corps Marathons and became a Para Skier. It was skiing where he felt most at peace and whole again. Casey finally succumbed to his injuries in October, 2014 and he will be sorely missed. RIP Marine.

    I remember this tough Russian and boy was he tough. It was such a shock to lose him. He loved shooting and he outwardly seemed tough and in charge but, on the inside he was hurting. Rest well Art.

    Combat Marine Husband and Father. Finally succumbed to PTS related illness. FYI PTS can kick your butt in many forms. "Christopher was an amazing son, husband, and father. He loved God, his country, and his family. He was the type of person you could talk to about anything, and he always found a solution to any problem. His jokes were ridiculous, but he could always bring a smile to anyone's face. He's the love of my life, and my hero. Nicole Yansky.
