A New Jersey Army National Guardsman Passed Away on Saturday. The Soldier had tested positive for COVID-19 and had been hospitalized since March 21. “Today is a sad day for the Department of Defense as we have lost our First American Service Member – Active, Reserve or Guard – to Coronavirus,” said Secretary of Defense Mark Esper. “This is a stinging loss for our Military community, and our condolences go out to his family, friends, civilian co-workers and the entire National Guard community.

“Put Me In The Game Coach…”  I Want To Help America’s Military & First Responders!

ORANGE COUNTY, California, 3/27/2020: While the United States of America and the World is fighting on all fronts the Coronavirus,  Many American’s are sitting at home wanting to help. It’s like an Athlete wanting to badly get into the Game and say “Put Me In The Game Coach..!” Yes there are ways to Help your Country and your Local Community.

Here I am on today’s Red Friday Mission visiting my local Military at the Joint Forces Base in Los Alamitos California. I dropped off my first delivery of 250 rubber gloves to the California Army National Guard’s MP’s who are guarding and checking ID’s at Bases Main Gate. The rubber gloves will help protect them from any “Cuties” as they check ID’s and inspect vehicles coming on the Post. AND we are doing our part practicing Social Distancing too!

Many Military Unit’s on the Base are conducting Medical, Supply and Logistical support to help our fellow American’s that are being affected by the Coronavirus. Along with Wartime Missions, Training Missions and Humanitarian Missions throughout the Globe. Also since it’s a National Guard, Reserve and staging area for various government agencies many of them are also fulltime First Responders and are in the Medical field as well.
