A couple of weeks ago LB (03XX Director of Operations) was out blanketing the Centreville, VA area with flyers for a charity bike wash. While stopping into all of the local motorcycle businesses he walked into Brooks’ Cycle Center and saw a large Marine Corps flag hanging behind the desk. It wasn’t your standard flag. It was one of those nice ones with the gold fringe around it. Come to find out the owner of Brooks’ Cycle Center is a Marine Veteran and is an 0311 (Jason Brooks).

While speaking with Jason he shared his story of all the trials and tribulations in the job market after he got out of the Marine Corps. As an 0311 he kept charging the hill.
