I served in the USMC from 1976 to 1980. I was paralyzed from a motocross accident in 2009. It took me a couple of years before I heard about the PVA. I eventually joined and was encouraged to join some other members at a skeet shooting event. My involvement with the Texas PVA Chapter slowly changed from what could they do for me to what I could do to help the Texas PVA Chapter. I have served as a CHL, Board Member and Houston Satellite Director.
