Now as a grown up, he spend his days raising two amazing children, working, traveling, hiking and doing Crossfit. Roman States, “Something else I am also passionate about is doing my part for our veterans.When my longtime friend (Shawn) whom I met while serving over 25 years ago asked me to be on his board of directors at Warrior Saber, I considered it an honor.” Roman would continue to say “Our mission at WS is to reward those veterans that have been a positive influence in their respective communities and who have bridged the gap between veterans and civilians. We feel this is important to recognize these veteran leaders in our society and we believe they are the backbone to the success in our communities.”
