While recovering at Bethesda Naval Medica Center, Redman authored and hung a bright orange sign on his door, which became known as the Sign on the Door and became a statement and symbol for wounded warriors everywhere.

In 2010, while still on active duty and recovering from his injuries, Redman founded the Wounded Wear clothing line and the Combat Wounded Coalition, a non-profit organization which inspires combat wounded warriors to Overcome. Redman served as the executive director of the organization for almost ten years.  The organization raised almost $3 million and served thousands of wounded warriors.  In November of 2013, after 21 years of service, Redman retired from the Navy and launched SOF Spoken LLC, a speaking company which provides inspirational presentations on leadership, teamwork and overcoming adversity for businesses, first responders, sports teams, and government organizations.

Craig Karges
The “extraordinist”

Craig Karges combines the art of magic with the science of psychology and the power of intuition to create the impression that nothing is impossible. Tables float, minds are read, metal bends, and your imagination is challenged because you won’t believe your eyes!

Using total audience participation, Karges dazzles the mind as he challenges you to question what is real and what is unreal. You don’t just watch the presentation, you experience it! He baffles, mystifies, and thoroughly entertains the audience and then, at the end of the presentation, when he has them n the palm of his hand, he delivers a powerful message concerning the potienial of the human mind. “Experience the Extraordinary” is business theatre and motivational entertainment at its best!
