Simple acts that give hope

It doesn’t take much. It doesn’t take a house or a parade, or even the ability to throw out the first pitch at a ballgame. This was costly for someone, but the anonymous donation to just help a guy out is an awesome testament to the true patriotism, love and appreciation of this country. Along…

Why we celebrate Memorial Day

It it clear that the last 15 years of constant combat for our military has brought about a new perception of what Memorial Day is about. For years growing up as a military brat, as a peace-time soldier, then a combat veteran myself and then back to being a peace-time soldier again that Memorial Day…

Happy Veteran’s Day Message from Nick Palmisciano and Ranger Up

What Veteran’s Day should mean to this country

A good friend of mine, multi-million album selling singer Matt Goss, said it best to me one day over 4 years ago. “There would be no Memorial Day or Independence Day without Veteran’s Day”. Truer words have never been spoken. If there weren’t Veterans to thank, then none of them would have given their lives for…

14 Years Later

It is so hard to imagine it has been 14 years since my life, the country’s direction and the world has changed. On September 10th, 2001 I flew from home to Boston to start another week at a client doing IT consulting work. Everything about all of our lives changed so dramatically between the 10th…
