Tribute Skateboard Deck Benefits Wounded Warrior Project

Major Don "Lash" LaRueEmbassy Skateboards of Houston has a tribute skateboard out to honor my time in combat and military service. The proceeds of this deck will be going to The Wounded Warrior Project, of which I am also an Alumni. I was injured in 2 separate IED blasts during Operation Iraqi Freedom. Please take a look, and I’ll be happy to personalize/autograph any deck.

V/R, Don “Lash” LaRue, SHSU ZM, 101st Airborne Division, Iraq

Last night made me realize something. Since returning from Iraq I’ve wondered why I am on edge, cranky, and agitated. People have been fascinated and quizzical as to how many people I have killed and what it’s like over there. I can only speak for myself, but would like to try and make people who have never “been there” understand. To me it’s quite simple:

  1. Killing an enemy combatant is easy. There is no remorse because he was trying to end your life and would have taken another’s later down the road.
  2. Saving a wounded individual is the most fulfilling. Making sure that person receives the life saving measures to go back to his family gives one a feeling that is indescribable.
