A loan helped a Marine Corps veteran purchase new equipment to increase storage capacity for his cattle business.
I am 32 years old and have been married to my great wife Kelli for 10 years. I met her when I came home from military service in 2006. We have 4 children. Our house is always busy because our oldest son is autistic, so we spend a lot of time working with all the kids to help everyone understand things better about autism. I joined the US Marine Corps in 2002 and immediately was deployed to Iraq in 2003, followed by a second deployment to Iraq in 2005. My job was a Combat Engineer and I was attached to a Explosive Ordinance Disposal Team both times I was deployed to Iraq. I was there a total of about 18 months. When I came back from deployment in 2005 I knew that I had experienced enough of war. I returned to NY where I continued to help my parents on their dairy farm, while starting our own Black Angus Herd of cattle. The dairy barn burnt to the ground on August 29th 2014. We worked hard to recover from this disaster and are slowly rebuilding Tucker's Black Angus Ranch.
