Danny Covey: Still Ticking


Danny says: I love being creative. My parents joked I was born with a pencil in my hand and, from a young age, I was drawing and entertaining anyone who would pay attention.
Despite having a good sense of humour, things haven’t always been easy. I’ve faced many battles throughout my life. I’ve undergone four open heart surgeries and a total of eight heart-related surgeries. I’ve nearly died on the operating table three times and was repeatedly told that I would never be able to physically excel. After much blood, sweat and tears, I’ve earned a black belt in Jiu Jitsu. This accomplishment came on the heels of having my descending aortic arch replaced in 2017 after it had ruptured. The fact that I am still alive and breathing after an aortic aneurysm is a miracle from God, and a story I am thankful to share with you today!

I do believe strongly that there is purpose to our suffering. What we face in not accidental. I want my story of how God brought me through dark times and difficult circumstances to become a part of someone else’s survival guide. Each and every day is a gift.

Chaplain Willie Springer heads the new Veterans Outreach Office in Berea Ohio. He is an Army combat veteran of Vietnam and has a master’s degree in theology. Ashland Theological Seminary also named Willie Springer, Ohio’s American Legion Chaplain of the Year.

In Chaplain Springer’s own words

I offer an open, sensitive, and non-judgmental presence. I am accepting of all different beliefs, cultures and values of all people. It is my goal to support every Veteran and their Families with as much compassion and care as possible. In this role, I will provide a supportive presence, listening, and appropriate interventions. The Veterans Outreach office will assist vets through educational outreach, support groups, emotional and spiritual assistance and community based programs. As a veteran myself, I understand and recognize the need for a safe, nurturing and community oriented approach for Veterans and Families.


Somer Dawn Burgess: Author of “HALO JUMPING”


What do you do? and Where do you turn, When a love one takes their life?

Somer Dawn Burgess is the Author of the book, “HALO JUMPING” and the Founder and former ED of True Blue Patriots Inc. 

What does the  Amazon book readers say about “HALO JUMPING”

A memoir about one couples life, unending love, and how PTSD caused from his military service, took a toll on their relationship and ultimately his life. The author writes, ” Men and women of United States Armed Forces provide the protection, comfort, and freedoms that have become synonymous with the right to call ourselves American citizens. It’s time to give back and take care of our greatest asset, the American soldier.” This really opens the eyes to what our service men and women have to endure. May God be with this author and her undying love for her husband and fellow military personnel.

A great reveal of the obstacles a family faces during a deployment. The media only wants us to see smiling faces on our brave soldiers, we never get to see the true grit. I read this book in one setting, something I seldom do. This was a very good read !! Will tell my friends.It’s an honor to be able to read your personal journey through the most difficult times one can experience. I love that you share the personable, caring and loving person your husband was so others can see why you were so in love with him too. Your honesty and meticulous documentation efforts are to be respected as well. Thank you again for sharing!

The novel was first of its kind to repeatedly make numerous national best sellers list, including #1 on the Essence list. Her next book, No Regrets, tackled the marital, personal, and financial impact breast cancer has on a family. It was popular among readers and followed Nobody’s Perfect onto the best seller’s list.

With both a B.S. in Industrial Engineering and a B.S. in Management, Science & Engineering degree from Stanford Univ. coupled with an M.B.A. that focused on finance and marketing from the Univ. of Chicago, readers are often surprised to hear that Patricia is writing novels, given her technical and business background.
