February's Featured Speaker, Tim Cruickshank, LCDR, USN, SEAL (Retired)–Bonefrog Coffee and Bonefrog Wine, CEO/Founder. The bonefrog is a sacred symbol in the Seal Teams that honors those that gave their lives. Tim understands and has seen the sacrifice required by both the service member and their families to keep the American dream a reality. Tim served 25 years in the US Navy and felt compelled when he retired to honor his Teammates and give back to the community that gave so much to him. This is his way to continue to serve. Bonefrog Coffee was founded on the core concept of sharing stories of courage, selflessness, and sacrifice on and off the battlefield. We will continue to say their names, so their memories will never be forgotten.
