Wednesday October 11th at 5:00 pm. Please bring a dish to pass and use the sign up sheet at the Welcome Desk. Our program will feature Rick Cicero, a former Army Paratrooper, with assignments in the 7th SOSC, 82nd Abn Div, and 173rd LRS Det. After serving as a police officer for short time post military-retirement, Richard returned to military service as a contractor. After nearly 3 yrs of contracting while on a foot patrol, Richard encountered an IED in Aug 2010, which resulted in the loss of his right arm and leg.
Since losing his limbs, Richard works as a volunteer with the VA, Army, and multiple other veterans organizations to aid fellow service members to return to civilian life or to remain active duty after injuries. His main speech will be on "finding that silver living" and "resilience" in the face of adversity.
