Founder & President
The founder and President of One Call Away is an Army Infantry veteran with a passion for helping today’s military veterans who suffer from the invisible wounds of combat. As a member of the Patriot Guard Riders he has participated in a number of military funerals in New England. He was struck by the staggering number of military veterans who died as a result of suicide. “There’s got to be something we can do” was the thought that motivated him to seek a way to help these people who struggle with the psychological problems brought on by PTSD. That spirit of getting things done drove him to gather friends from the Patriot Guard Riders and others, some of them veterans themselves, to form a foundation that gives hands on help to individuals who isolate themselves from established care giving organizations.
As a member of the Patriot Guard Riders, we had stood flag lines for way too many young veterans that had taken their own life. When our founder originally approached us with the idea of raising awareness of PTSD and supporting those that are struggling with the effects of this condition, it just seemed like the right thing for me. This mission hasn’t always been easy, but it is very rewarding
Being a part of One Call Away has been such a pleasure over the last 5 years. Meeting some wonderful caring people who put so much energy into making sure we take care of our service men and women. Although I have never served, I have been around our military from childhood. My dad served in WWII and Korea. I have a brother in law and nephew, who served and I am so very proud of them. I have cousins who have also served. This is my way of saying thank you and I appreciate what you have given up for me. Now it's my turn to serve you.
