We talk about their programs and goals in giving Gold Star Teens a chance to focus on Healing, Opportunity and Leadership. Kent shares his personal story of his time in service, being critically wounded in 2007, how this gave him a different perspective on life and his desire to give back to the children and families who have lost a loved one. What he learned from the time he left the battlefield and while receiving care at Walter Reed helped formulate the idea of Gold Star Teen Adventures.
