After researching numerous charities, Marc decided on FIDELCO Guide Dog Foundation. Although each trained guide dog costs about $45,000, FIDELCO has provided Guide Dogs to disabled veterans at no cost. Several of those who received guide dogs are Veterans who were Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technicians (EOD) and lost their sight in Iraq and Afghanistan. All royalties Marc earns from sales of paperbacks and ebooks will be donated to FIDELCO.
CRIS Radio will be providing the recording facility and coaching needed to produce the audio book, and they will receive the profits from the sale of the audio book that Marc currently recording.
While the numbers of US Service personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan is currently at a low level National Guard deployments overseas still continue. Last week a group of Army national Guard soldiers deployed to Poland on a real-world mission. The active duty can no longer deploy without Guard and Reserve support.
