We are honored to have Bruce Mc Quain from QandO as regular part of the program. Bruce will be handling the Someone You Should Know series moving forward. Matt Burden from Blackfive strongly recommended that Bruce take over.
Why is Bruce such a great fit? On QandO, he has done a series very similar to Someone You Should Know. Project Hero tells the stories of those who were awarded the Silver Star. Bruce spent 28 years in the US military, is a Vietnam veteran, a Ranger and like Matt, was a member of the 82nd Airborne.

Someone You Should Know: Kanaan Merriken
This week, Bruce told us the incredible story of Kanaan Merriken and his amazing journey back to active duty service.
Now I don’t know about you, but I would expect that long road to be a recovery that would allow Kanaan Merriken to live a relatively normal life. The Army had medically retired him by that time. But that wasn’t the road Merriken chose. Merriken’s road to recovery included returning to active duty.
In November 2005, Ranger Kanaan Merriken, after the succesful appeal of his medical retirement, completed the RIP course for the second time (Ranger Indoctrination Program … a requirement for all candidates for duty with the 75th Ranger Regiment). He was selected as the classes’ Honor Graduate and was the leadership award winner.
He has subsequently rejoined the unit he so loves and is again a proud and serving member of the 75th Ranger Regiment.
