Hero of the Month – January 2018

Hamilton K. – 3/75th Army Rangers

To all the CSC Family: As many of you know, the 3/75th Army Rangers come every year and compete in the CSC. Well they need our help. Their team leader, Hamilton K. was serving valiantly in Afghanistan on his 15th combat deployment with his fellow Rangers, representing all that is great about the American Warrior, when he was shot in the arm with a 7.62 rifle round. His arm shattered, Hamilton still somehow managed to board an evac helicopter and walk off it once it landed at …an Army hospital. He has since been flown to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center to rebuild his arm. One surgery down and more to follow, we want to raise funds to help him and his family as they embark on a grueling recovery. One dollar or one hundred dollars, it doesn’t matter, just please donate.
