Mini Bio (1)
Josh is a U.S. Marine Corps combat veteran of 3rd Battalion, 1st Marine Regiment. He was one of the very last casualties of the battle of Fallujah in 2004, the largest urban combat operation since the Vietnam War. Josh was part of a six-week battle that involved vicious street-by-street and house-by-house fighting against an entrenched enemy that left nearly 100 American soldiers and Marines dead, and another 560 wounded.
Josh was awarded his first Purple Heart in November 2004 when he was knocked unconscious and suffered other wounds from a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) blast. Less than a month later he took a more serious wound when he got into a gun fight with an Iraqi insurgent while clearing a house in Fallujah. He needed six blood transfusions to keep him alive and eventually underwent 22 operations.
Josh is an ambassador from the veteran community and an outspoken advocate for medical cannabis research.
