We are setting up this account to help defray some of the immediate costs associated with the shocking loss of SSG Travis Patterson (PHENEX) to suicide.
SSG Patterson was an amazing man, and left behind a wonderful wife. He was a veteran of both Iraq and Afghanistan, and was medically discharged. He had been dealing with an incredible level of pain due to his injuries, all while attending Law School at Washburn Unniverity, where he made the Dean's Honor Roll and also worked in the Diversity and Inclusion office. He was a very active member of the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association and was one of the first people to step up to help his fellow veterans. It is a tragedy on every level that we have lost this man. His wife will undoubtedly have a rough time and a long road. It is our hope that we can garner enough donations to help to defray the immediate costs, especially as he was the primary source of income.
