My name is Jess Maney, I am a Captain in the U.S. Army currently serving in the Arizona National Guard. I have been in the Army for 18 years and been on 4 deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq. In this time I have had many friends killed and wounded in combat. I was also injured in multiple IED blasts in 2009.

Through my recovery I found passion for helping my fellow injured brothers at arms. While serving in many different veteran organizations that help the recovery of wounded veterans I realized something that all veterans have in common. All these organizations do wonderful things for wounded vets in aspects of therapy and transition back to a civilian lifestyle. But something was missing, after we all have returned back to society and are learning to adapt to life with injuries we all feel that there is something missing, something that doctors do not realize. We all have lost our edge, the excitement and the adrenaline rush. People do not understand that after you've experienced extreme situations in life you crave the excitment forever. When we are forced to reconstruct our lives after our injuries many of us don't have an outlet to feed the rush, to keep our edge. I truly believe that this leads to depression and substance abuse and even suicide. These are all very common things for recovering wounded vets. With injuries such as TBI, PTSD and loss of limbs, veterans do not have the ability or the resources to experience anything extreme and exciting to get their heart pounding once again. 

Our team of Veterans and Patriots look forward to being able to provide an outlet for energy and excitement to help veterans in their transition of surviving the peace after war. 

Thank you for your support,
CPT Jess Maney
