Mike Tyrrel entered the Marine Corps Reserves in December of 1986 and retired from the Navy in 2007 after 20 years of service. Mike served with 1st ANGLICO, 1st Recon Bn, 1st Force Recon Co, Marine Corps SOCOM Detachment 1 and the Special Missions Training Branch for the newly formed MARSOC where he had multiple combat deployments. Shortly after retirement, Mike and his wife Merri created a company focusing on small arms and operational medical training. They are honored to have over 100 special operations combat veterans working with them. As an avid outdoorsman, Mike was inspired by the true healing and camaraderie during such activities. He decided to focus on the psychological well-being of the combat veteran and their struggle with the part of life that outsiders cannot see through the implementation of a recreational therapy program.
