Our Mission

About FOB Rasor

On April 21, 2017 my best friend and Brother-in-Arms, Sergeant Joe Rasor died by suicide. At the time, I was six months sober and 5 months removed from an in-patient rehab program for alcoholism, PTSD and contemplating my own suicide. I, just like so many of my fellow veterans, knew how dire and hopeless Joe must have felt before he made his final decision. After thoroughly and honestly working a 12 step program, my entire life has changed. I have a new love for life and stronger, more efficient coping skills for life’s less than desirable moments. Over the last 4 years, I have constantly wished that I could have shown Joe all about this life saving and life changing process. So today, FOB Rasor is a welcoming and safe platform for veterans to sit knee cap to knee cap with their comrades in arms, to repel the suicide rate in the warrior community. By sharing this 12 step way of LIVING, FOB Rasor is the home of Lifers for Life.

Our Directors

Gunnery Sergeant Jeff Shilanski / USMC / Retired

President/ Chairman

It was my honor & privilege to serve as an Infantry Unit Leader in the United States Marine Corps from January of 1993 to October of 2013. My battle with PTSD was nearly lost but with the support of my fellow veterans, I pulled through and am a living my best life.  I started FOB Rasor to pay it forward to those still suffering.  I cannot and will not loose another brother or sister.

Today, I work for Kirby Inland Marine as a dispatcher. I enjoy my family, our dogs, the outdoors and my life. My passions are my sobriety, my 12 step program and helping others discover the peace and happiness that life has to offer.

Steve Hummer LtGen of Marines, Retired

The Marine Corps Coordinating Council, Southeast Texas is proud to endorse FOB Rasor for their efforts to support the Veterans of all Military Branches throughout Southeast Texas.  I served with Gunnery Sergeant Jeff Shilanski and know first-hand the caliber of Marine, Leader, and Mentor he was to his Marines.  I further understand the difficulty he had confronting his personal "Demons", the ones that exist to some degree within every Combat Veteran.  He chose triumph over defeat and emerged on the "other side" stronger and more determined than ever.  With the encouragement from his wife Carrie and the assistance of his father in law James, they created FOB Rasor to give other Combat Veterans the advantage of care, love, and mentorship to give them the strength to also choose triumph over defeat.  The team at FOB Rasor is truly making a difference.

On Behalf of the the Council, Steve Cutrer, Master Gunnery Sergeant, USMC (Ret), President, Marine Corps Coordinating Council, Southeast Texas
