In the world of a warrior, we find ourselves facing great opposition over and over again. New battles arise and are fought toe to toe by those who are willing to go and do things others would never consider. Its not because we are heroes, looking for fame, and it sure isn’t for the fortune. Its done because of the others standing side by side with you and their will to fight the fight along side you. Many of us have been through extreme battles and have lost great friends. We all wish we could go back and trade places with them, but unfortunately we cannot.

We do have the opportunity to help a fellow brother with a new battle that most of us have no experience with. Chris "Burt" Reynolds was diagnosed with stage-4 prostate cancer. As father and warrior, he spent much of his time serving our country alongside other great warriors like us. His Army career started in 1979 where he received orders to Alpha co. 2nd Ranger Battalion. He then went to the 4/23rd Infantry unit from March 1981-1983 in Alaska. He attended Ranger school (class 14-82) then went back to 2nd Ranger Battalion March 1983. From there he transferred to the Ranger Department (todays Ranger Regiment) at Ft. Benning from February 1986-1987. This still was not enough for Chris so he decided to attend the SFAS Q-Course in 1987. Upon completion he was assigned to 10th Special Forces Group from 1988-1990 and 19th Special Forces Group from Jan 2002-2005. Other key accomplishments were his combat jump into Grenada with 2nd Ranger Battalion, awarded many military awards including two separate Combat Infantry Badges, and his long contribution to the US Special Operation Forces. After his military career, he spent time on a mobile contractor program. As a contractor he continued to serve his country and help win the fight against Islamic extremists.

Chris Reynolds, like most of us, is a quiet professional and did not ask for any help when it came to his battle with prostate cancer. We as fellow warriors however should not let him fight this battle alone. Those who know Chris personally, and those who have never met him but are willing to stand by a fellow brother established this fundraising program. Please take this time to help donate some funds to help get Chris back on his feet. He did not ask for any of this, but we all know it’s the right thing to do.
