U.S. Marines Sergeant Jake Wood, co-Founder and CEO of Team Rubicon, will receive the Pat Tillman Award for Service. Jake Wood was a freshman offensive lineman with the Wisconsin Badgers when the Twin Towers fell on September 11, 2001. Inspired by the first responders who risked their lives while trying to help others, and by former Arizona Cardinal Pat Tillman's selfless sacrifice, Wood joined the United States Marine Corps. He was eventually promoted to sergeant and served four years in Iraq and Afghanistan, deployed as a scout sniper. Wood earned the Navy-Marine Commendation Medal during his time of service; and since being honorably discharged from the Marines in 2009, Wood has committed to advocating for veterans in the United States. He has actively lobbied Presidents Clinton, Bush and Obama on veteran transition and disaster response, and has testified before a Senate committee on improving mental health services for veterans. For his dedication to serving others, Wood will receive the Pat Tillman Award for Service sponsored by Bonobos.
