This High Fives video starring Jake Schick will make your day

Memorial Day: today, we remember and honor the fallen and those who have served the United States of America. And on this Memorial Day in particular, we give thanks to Jacob Schick, for providing inspiration to us all.

“Jake Schick is a third generation Marine who epitomizes service and sacrifice,” says Roy Tuscany, High Fives Foundation founder. “He sustained life-altering injuries during a 2004 tour in Iraq, which resulted in the loss of his right leg, [traumatic brain injury] and numerous other injuries. After 12 years away from the snow, [in March], Schick returned to skiing with a High Fives Foundation Empowerment Grant.”

Way to slay that T2B on D1, Jacob. He reminds us, “Act as if what you do makes a difference, it does.”

To military men and women across the U.S., past, present and future, thank you.
