Michael Roesch and Daria Smith
US Air Force Veteran, Michael Roesch, will not slow down.
Through injuries and setbacks he continues to participate in endurance events
in support of veterans on Team Hope For The Warriors. 
Michael served in the Air Force from 1999 to 2003. His
transition after service was challenging; he described himself as “rough around
the edges” and was not prepared for the adjustment back to civilian life.
Michael grew up a military brat, and once he left the Air Force he lost the
warrior culture that had surrounded him his entire life. However, through
fitness and physical challenges, Michael found a place to call home through
Hope For The Warriors.
Beyond his resiliency, Michael has a secret weapon that keeps
him going—his girlfriend, Daria Smith. In his own words, “She does not allow me
to be a lesser version of myself.” Daria participates in every endurance event

The Warriors community and inspire us all to become the best versions of
