I’d like to share with you my journey and involvement with Mission 22, an organization that holds a special place in my heart. As a former U2 Mission planner and pilot, I’ve had my fair share of challenges and experiences in the military, and I’m deeply committed to giving back to those who have served our country.
Mission 22 is not just another veterans’ organization; it’s a family. Founded by veterans and staffed by individuals who have a direct connection to the military, it understands the unique challenges veterans and their families face. That personal connection is what makes Mission 22 so special. As someone who has seen the sacrifices and challenges veterans go through firsthand, I wanted to find a way to support this incredible organization. That’s when the idea of the Dragon Lady Tee Shirt came into play. The Dragon Lady, a legendary aircraft, symbolizes the strength, courage, and determination of veterans. It’s a symbol I hold close to my heart.
My friend Dana, a former U2 Mission planner with the callsign Flair and the owner of @squadron_af, designed the Dragon Lady Tee Shirt. Not only is it a stylish and cool design, but it’s also a powerful statement of support for our veterans. When you purchase one of these shirts or hoodies, you’re not just buying fashion; you’re making a direct and meaningful contribution to Mission 22. What’s even more incredible is that every cent of the proceeds from these shirts goes directly to Mission 22. It’s a way for all of us to come together and help veterans facing physical and mental health challenges. I’ve seen the difference this organization can make, and I’m proud to be a part of it.
But my commitment to supporting veterans doesn’t stop with the Dragon Lady Tee Shirt. I’ve also authored a book, which you can find on Amazon and Kindle. Partial proceeds from the book sales go to Legacy Flight Academy, an organization dedicated to exposing underserved youth, especially kids of color, to flight and STEM programs. Additionally, I offer other merchandise, and the full proceeds from those sales go to Mission 22. Every purchase, every book, every tee shirt contributes to a cause that’s close to my heart.
I believe that America’s veterans make our society stronger, and they deserve unwavering support when they need it most. I invite you to join me in making a difference. Get your very own White Dragon Lady Tee Shirt, grab a copy of my book, or explore the other merchandise available. Your support will go directly to Mission 22 and help veterans and their families thrive. It’s not just about fashion; it’s about showing our gratitude and support for those who’ve dedicated their lives to serving our country. Together, we can make a real impact and provide the help and resources that veterans need. Thank you for joining me in this important mission to heal and empower America’s veterans.
