The story doesn't end on the pages of Baptized by Fire. Every year I lead a non-profit initiative for dozens of veterans and their families.  
The MoreLife Initiative is a transformative outdoor retreat program created in memory of Matthew Lempergel. A family member and paratrooper who lost his life to suicide on Jan. 22, 2012. Matthew's spirit of adventure lives on through the mission of MoreLIfe. To develop and enrich the lives of our nation's hero's through adventure.
