THE WALKING MARINE
Terry Sharpe joined the Marine Corps in 1968 at the age of seventeen. After completing Boot and Combat Infantry training at Parris Island and Camp Lejeune, he was assigned to Camp Geiger teaching squad tactics until December 1968. In January 1969 he went for survival training at Camp Pendleton, then on to Okinawa, Japan for 2 weeks of hand-to-hand combat training before being sent to Vietnam. Terry served 13 months in Vietnam and was discharged in 1970 with the rank of Lance Corporal.
His adventures as the Walking Marine began in September 2014, when he heard the news about Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi being jailed in Mexico. On September 6, 2014 he started walking to Washington DC. He had no plan, just a flag, a backpack, and a desire to bring attention to Andrew’s plight. Terry was almost to Danville when he met Allen Brown, who asked what he was doing. When Terry explained it, Allen asked if he could join him. It was on this walk that Terry and Allen learned they had both served in the same Battalion in Vietnam and shared many of the same experiences. At 63 years old that trip of 300 miles in September 2014 was a challenge for both of them. They arrived in Washington DC on September 30. Our government and the media continued to ignore the issue, so on October 6, 2014, Terry and Allen again walked the 300 miles, arriving in DC on October 25. Their efforts helped draw media attention to the cause and on October 28, 2014, Sgt. Tahmooressi was released from prison in Mexico. In 2015, Terry again found himself frustrated by fellow Marine Veterans being held unfairly in foreign lands, and on June 1, 2015, Terry once again decided to walk to the White House to demand support for Amir Hekmati, Saeed Abedini, Jason Rezaian and Robert Levinson who were being held in Iranian prisons. Terry completed his walk on June 20, 2015 and three of the captives (Hekmati, Abendini and Rezaian) were released in January 2016. As Vietnam Veterans who suffer their own problems with PTSD, it was no surprise when Terry and Allen became involved with the horrific issue of the 22+ Veterans who take their lives every day. On June 1, 2016, Terry set out for DC once again, this time to raise awareness of the problems our Vets face. On the 25th of June he spoke at a rally sponsored by the Defenders of Liberty MC in DC, and he has been tirelessly raising public awareness ever since, walking, doing interviews, speaking and standing on street corners with his ever growing group of supporters. He will be leaving on his 5th walk to DC on May 4, 2017, once again for our beloved Veterans.

Scott Gager is a voice impersonator, and singer/entertainer. He was born in a small town in Southern New Jersey where he resides with his wife, Debbie. They have four children, one of whom is an Army Combat Vet.
During the 2012 election, Scott looked at the map of our nation and was saddened by how divided it was by Red and Blue States. He started to write a song that night and he and his wife finished it just as their son, a soldier stationed with the 10th Mountain Division, was deploying to Afghanistan. The song is called Red and Blue and was produced in a local studio in NJ by Paul Street. Red and Blue has been played on the radio and is available on iTunes.
Scott discovered he could sing five years ago. Someone recorded him singing a James Taylor song and when he heard it back he was shocked. He began to work on his vocals and soon learned he had the ability to impersonate virtually anyone, in all genres of music. In March of 2012, Scott began performing weekly at a local bar; and from August - October of that same year, Scott was the featured singer at the Steel Pier in Atlantic City.
Scott can impersonate over 100 voices. He has performed in Nashville, TN; Branson, MO; Atlantic City, NJ; and locally throughout the Philadelphia/South Jersey area.
You can follow Scott on Facebook or check him out on YouTube.
Sheriff Mack is best known for challenging the Brady Bill, a gun control scheme requiring local law enforcement to perform background checks on prospective gun purchasers. He maintained that the Federal Government had no authority to command local officials, and became the first sheriff in American history to sue the Federal Government (under the Clinton administration) and win at the US Supreme Court. The case was based on the Tenth Amendment, states rights and local sovereignty.
Mack is the son of an FBI agent and began his own law enforcement career as a street cop in Provo, Utah. After graduating from BYU in 1978, Mack became an officer with Provo P. D. He was soon promoted to corporal, sergeant, and detective. He spent one year as an undercover narcotics agent.
In 1988, Mack moved home to Arizona where he ran for sheriff. He was elected Graham County Sheriff and served as such for eight years. It was during this time – in 1994 – that federal agents informed all sheriffs that they would be required to work for the Federal Government under the mandate of the Brady Bill, and Mack's court case began. Since that landmark ruling Mack has written seven books and appeared at over 120 Tea Party rallies nationwide. He has stood against the incursions of the Federal Government and has fought for civil rights from Hawaii to Bangor, Maine.
He is the Founder and President of the Constitutional Sheriffs and Peace Officers Association (CSPOA).
