Hanging out with people that shared similar life experiences and the program replicates the camaraderie we all once shared while serving.

How has it helped you transition between military and civilian life?

I am a homebody, but hockey is always something that can get me out of the house or out of a funk.

What is the most fulfilling part of being a Tampa Warrior?

Seeing how this program has a positive effect on the athletes.

You get what you put into it.
