Jared: "I have been privileged to serve as Honorary Command Chief for the past year under Chief Kaleth Wright. We just had his farewell luncheon at the base as he is leaving this week to spend a year in Afghanistan. The man has a true passion for training tomorrow's leaders and genuinely cares for the airmen he commands. The world would be a better place if there were more people like him in it, and it's comforting to know people like him are on the front lines protecting my way of life."
Jared got to be part of the 20th Anniversary Celebration of McConnell Air Force Base with Congressman Pompeo, Senator Roberts, and Colonel Carlton (shown in the picture). Colonel Carlton's advice and encouragement played a huge role in Jared's decision to speak full time. #FIREBACK #Gratitude

Jared is now starting a new Non-Profit Foundation that will help a variety of people dealing with difficult circumstances - in particular, families, students, military personnel, and burn victims. #FIREBACK
