Karson & Kennedy are excited to be supporting the 2012 Run-Walk to Home Base event which is happening on May 20th.  You can thank our wounded veterans by helping to provide the services they have earned. Join the 2012 Run-Walk to Home Base Presented by New Balance at Fenway Park. To learn more, visit www.runtohomebase.org

Karson and Kennedy interviewed Joe Magee, a Sgt. in the Marines from 2000-2009.  Joe grew up in South Boston and has had 4 deployments, 2 to Iraq and 2 to Okinawa during his 9 years in the service.  Joe hasn’t been diagnosed with PTSD, but fears he has it and has seen may friends suffer with it.   Joe is in school at Salem State working on Bachelor of Fire Science, hoping to become a Boston firefighter.  His team name is “Mass Fallen Heroes” and his fundraising page can be found at: http://www.runtohomebase.org/runtohomebase/JoeMagee417
