Who I am and why am I organizing this race? I am a C-130 pilot for the Illinois Air National Guard and have deployed to Iraq/Afghanistan 7 times in the past 10 years. One of the duties of my job is to fly injured servicemen and servicewomen off the battle field. It is one of the most important duties of my job. I have a passion for helping our wounded warriors and have decided to organize this event for that purpose.
