Candy Sugarman is a former non-gunner. She didn't pick up a gun with the intent of learning to shoot until she was 39 years old. In 2009, her husband, a retired Army service member, saw an ad for the NRA Women's Wilderness Escape, a 10-day shooting experience. It was nothing short of transformational. In the company of women, she learned about newfound camaraderie, pushing past fear, the safe handling of firearms, and that women who shoot are as diverse as they are a fabulous bunch! After she came home to North Carolina, with only 10-days of shooting experience under her belt, she started Gun Powder Gals, a women's only shooting group. They currently have over 400 members in the Greater Raleigh area, consisting of women of all ages, backgrounds, and experience. Together, they learn about safe gun handling, and from there continue to increase firearm skills once they've gotten down the basics. Candy has hosted a Feminine & Fierce: Women's Self-Protection Seminar, various shooting clinics, and authored a book, " The Girl Next Door: The Unexpected Gun Owner."
In her contribution to our vet community, Candy empowers women to move beyond the fear of learning about guns, and encourages spouses of both active duty and veterans to join in on the fun! Visit her on her Facebook Gun Powder Gals page!
Over the last 10 years, Justin Blazejewski, also known as Blaze, by his fellow Marines, has served as a communication engineer with a total of 40+ temporary duty assignments. Prior to that he served in the Marine Corps and had sustained a back injury. Yoga helped ease the physical, mental and emotional burdens that evolved from traveling in and out of war zones for more than a decade. Soon after his first Yoga class, he dove into a daily practice, and his back pain disappeared within two short weeks. Justin was in his 4th year of monthly travel to Afghanistan and Iraq when he devoted himself to his daily practice. He began to find clarity, calmness and intuition in his life. This led him to one of his Gurus in New York City, named Sri Dharma Mittra. He enrolled in their teacher training and went on to graduate his 200-hr, 500-hr and 800-hr teacher trainings, including Acro Yoga, Dharma MIttra Yoga, and the Amrit Method of Yoga Nidra. This makes Justin one of the most highly trained yoga teachers in the country and world. Justin's mission is to be of service to others by sharing the powerful healing benefits of yoga and meditation. He strives to share yoga with those who need it most in life, especially those who are carrying similar burdens of war, his brothers and sisters of the armed services and veterans. He does so with his 501(c)3 not-for-profit, VETOGA, originally based in D.C. and now branching out to cities nationwide. Justin and his team give the gift of free Yoga Teacher Trainings to military, veterans, and their family members, as a means to ensure the healing of the wounds of war for many years to come.
Blaze contributes to Our Vet Community by sharing nearly an hour of insight with Jo Standing on video footage received by members of our community. Justin is also interviewed by the Department of Veteran's Affairs online podcasts.
