As a member of HAA, he met many other players who when through the transition out of uniform into the civilian sector and was fortunate enough to land a job with a government contractor. Chris was mentored by quite a few of his teammates who had “been there and done that.” He has certainly endeared himself to our charity and today, Chris plays on two the Hero teams. The entire Heroes Athletic Association is proud of Chris, as well as pleased to have been able to support him in his transition.

Thanks for being part of HAA Chris and being a great example of a Soldier who transitioned the right way to help support his wife’s career.
