Kim “Rooster” Rossiter is a retired Marine Corps Major and combat veteran of Operation IRAQI FREEDOM. His story is tightly interwoven with his daughter Ainsley’s, who was born with a terminal illness in 2003. Instead of shirking from the difficult task of facing Ainsley’s inevitable fate, Rooster and his wife embraced it to ensure Ainsley lived every moment of her time on earth. The Rossiter’s eventually started Ainsley’s Angels in honor of Ainsley. Ainsley’s Angels builds awareness about America’s special needs community, and aims to ensure everyone can experience endurance events, something that always put a smile on Ainsley’s face. Hear this powerful story of combat and survival, both on the battlefield and at home, on our latest edition of HAZARD GROUND!
