As a United States Marine with over thirteen years of experience, it’s hard to find individuals with the same energy, motivation, and devotion outside of the military. I was recommended to FTF through a colleague while stationed at Ft. Sam Houston. After just a few days of meeting FTF representatives I found exactly those qualities. Rarely have I found someone who is willing to share their experiences, but also continually provide mentorship as well. Without the assistance of these venue types, it might be possible to provide the mentorship that so many people want, but it would not be possible to produce the sound mind, body, and camaraderie that so many individuals need.
