After serving our country for 20 years as an Active Duty Infantry Soldier Tom retired in 2006.  His military career enhanced and mastered his teaching skills by serving 4 years as an US Army Ranger Instructor, 2 years as a Basic Training Drill Sergeant,  and spent his last year as the Commander of the Northern Iraqi Army Training Academy Located in Tikrit, Iraq. 

Some of Tom's military accomplishments include, Ranger School, Airborne School, Jump Master, SERE School, Long Range Surveillance Leaders Course, Military Free Fall,  Military Free Fall Jump Master, Distinguished Honor Graduate US Army Drill Sergeant School, First Sergeant Academy, and was selected to the US Army Sergeants Major Academy of which he respectfully declined to Retire.

Tom brings sound judgment and skilled workmanship to Wild Rose Equestrian Center. As a second generation Farrier, his blacksmith skills and metal working have been instrumental. Not only has he manufactured all of our stall fronts, gates, and steel work for our facility, but Tom is a handyman like No Other!  Without his total willingness to build, repair, maintain or engineer any one of my (Karen's)  bright ideas, this facility would not be where it is today.  Thank you Tom for all you have done, and continue to do on a Daily basis for our Farm.
