About HeroRaise®

Our Story and Mission

It’s easy to remember how you felt that September morning when you heard America was under attack, but all too often we overlook the unbelievable heroism shown by our heroic first responders. I had the privilege of working side by side with these brave men and women as they risked, and in many cases gave their lives serving complete strangers. As a member of the Army’s 3rd U.S. Infantry Regiment (The Old Guard), I was one of many soldiers on call that morning to defend Washington D.C. when needed. My company, Charlie Company was the first to respond to the attack on the Pentagon that historic morning. What I saw that day gave me eternal appreciation and respect for ALL who choose to wear the uniform. That day our first responders and service members did what they always do…they did their job with the utmost professionalism and excellence. For that reason alone, we as a county should be eternally grateful. I know I am, which is why I created HeroRaise®.”
