Stronger in the End

I think I stumbled upon the Raider Project after seeing an ad for T-shirts.  I always wanted to be involved in an organization that was Marine Corps based, especially focused around grunts or combat veterans. I was able to get registered with the program within a few short days and had the privilege of attending a rock climbing retreat in September. I was impressed with how fast and well I was taken care of and received.

My time at the retreat was awesome.  It felt so good to be around combat Marines again.  While I have a great appreciation for my own experience,  it is the experience I saw another Marine enjoy that made me a proud and firm believer in the Raider Project and its mission. 

A friend of Nick's showed up a little late to the retreat. Let's call him "Jack" - A hard working and likeable devil dog  down on his luck, struggling and battling his way through life. , he opened up as we sat around the fire one night, and Nick listened intently and patiently without judgement. It was so good to see such genuine concern and desire to help.  It was good to see this Marine be celebrated in such an uplifting way by his peers as they chanted his name,  unbeknownst to many just how much he'd been hurting just weeks before. The Raider Program has a great staff, and a great leader. Nick took the time to listen to everybody there, while encouraging us all to seek help from him and our brothers in battle, as well as another great organization: The Gallant Few. Rock climbing is a perfect metaphor for what this program does, as it teaches us that the rock face in front of us can feel overwhelming and intimidating, but with the help of those around you, your grit, and the decision to take it one move at a time,  you will make it to the top, and be that much stronger in the end. Thank you.
