Navy Veteran Seeks Another Chance
Ever since leaving the Navy in 2004, I have been looking to change my life for the better. I have been dealing with bouts of sadness and doubt and it shows by the weight I have gained and maintained in the past 8 years. I have basically checked out physically and mentally when it comes to living the life I once knew. My career in the Navy and my dream of becoming a Naval Flight Officer did not work out for me, but I know life does not end there. I know in my heart I am capable of achieving great things. I want another shot of becoming the person I dream about by completing a triathlon with the ultimate goal of becoming an Ironman. With your help, I am positive I can make this reality. Thank you so much for your consideration...
