Vets helping Vets LIVE with PTSD

Our Mission

About FOB Rasor

On April 21, 2017 my best friend and Brother-in-Arms, Sergeant Joe Rasor Committed 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 3 plus 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.
