(State director)

Shawn currently resides is LaCrosse Wisconsin with his wife Stacy. Shawn was a Marine from 1989-1993. After a year out, he decided he missed the brotherhood of the military and joined the Wisconsin Army National Guard. After 2 years, he transferred to the Idaho Guard where he became AGR (Active Guard Reserve) serving as Readiness NCO for the 116th Engineer Bn. At 17 years, he volunteered to go back to Iraq but was diagnosed with severe sleep apnea and was honorably medically discharged. He discovered his love for the outdoors in Idaho, hunting for Elk and deer. The Outdoors obsession was reborn just a few years ago as he discovered Ice Fishing. Shawn is a crew chief for a NASCAR sanctioned late model which takes up a lot of his time from April-October. Shawn is employed by City Brewery in LaCrosse. Ice Fishing, Racing, helping Vets and Law enforcement, and making beer, can life get any better?
