Special Zoom with Jacob Schlick on Monday, June 1st at 6 pm

Join us for a special Zoom meeting with retired Marine Jacob Schlick on June 1 at 6pm for about 45 minutes to an hour. Jake was injured in Iraq in 2004 while on active duty resulting in partial loss of his left hand and arm and his left leg being amputated below the knee. Despite dozens of surgeries and struggling with depression, Jake has been able to forge forward. Jake is the founder and CEO of the nonprofit 22Kill. Their mission is to reduce veteran suicide by focusing on helping battle depression, anxiety and addiction. Jake has also appeared in multiple movies including American Sniper and Range 15 and is a successful speaker. Trust me....you don’t want to miss this! Jake is 100% Marine and has an incredible story to tell. Please sure this with all of the youth in your units! Email Michell Crawford, crawford-clan@sbcglobal.net, your name and unit number for the zoom information.
