My name is Shawn Patterson, founder of the Redeemed 22. I am an 8-year U.S. Army veteran with three tours overseas, one to Afghanistan and two to Iraq. I am also a grateful and faithful believer in Jesus Christ. I am the father of 2 beautiful daughters, Sierra and Sophia. I have victory over alcohol, depression, anxiety, and control. I also struggled with my sense of purpose. If those symptoms sound familiar, you know what I am talking about. Most importantly I have given my heart completely over to the care of God and now I am living for Jesus!
I am a Veteran.
I have seen and done things that many will not understand.
I am a warrior and member of a team spanning the world.
I have served my country proudly and now standby to server my brothers and sisters in arms.
I will never accept defeat.
I will never quit.
I will never leave a fallen brother or sister. If they are hurt, I will carry them.
If I can't carry them, I will drag them.
I will help them face their enemies, to include the demons from within.
They are my brothers and they are my sisters.
I AM A VETERAN!
