Corporal Josue Barron, USMC (Ret.)

Growing up in Los Angeles, Josue was the middle child of seven kids being raised by a single mother. He played a lot of street basketball and got involved in the L.A. gang scene.

“I started in the gangs when I was 14,” Josue recalls. “By the time I was 17, I had done so much, I was tired of it. Most of the gang members were getting nowhere, and as I was getting older, I saw that was not the life I wanted to live. I wanted to change Read the rest of this entry »

U.S. Army Ranger, 1LT Nathan Rimpf, USA (Ret.)

“I still don’t feel like I did that much,” Nathan told the Midtown Raleigh News in 2013, “but everyone keeps saying that I did. So, I’m starting to believe them, I guess.”
