Interview with Jonathan Barthel and Justin Stubbendick

Janesville, Wisconsin

September 30, 2018

United Patriot Missions pairs veterans and noble civilians together to do good works in honor of fallen service members. Our first mission has been to help serve and support the Johnson family who are facing the challenges associated with pediatric cancer. Patrick and Debbie Johnson have 3 children named Tyler, Aiden, and Isaac. Isaac is battling neuroblastoma.

In this interview with Jonathan Barthel and Justin Stubbendick, they share how their friendship formed and what led them to serve the Johnson family. Their friendship began the night Justin helped save Jonathan’s life after a vicious attack and was forged through a brotherhood that values the miracle of life and the resilience to overcome adversity with positivity. When these warriors witnessed the warrior within 4 year old Isaac Johnson–Isaac and his family had their immediate, unwavering allegiance.

Just prior to this interview, Jonathan shared with Justin that after 5 years of rehabilitation, perseverance, and recovering from his injuries, he’d just officially received his pilot license. The night Justin rendered aid to Jonathan and helped stop his bleeding, he didn’t know the full magnitude of what he held in his hands. In time it is being revealed.

It is my honor to share with you all the power of what selfless service can create.We take all of these actions in service and support of the Johnsons in honor of United States Army Sergeant Dan Thompson who made the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan in February 2009.

We are grateful that Dan’s mother Lisa has granted us permission to do this in her son’s name.Join us in helping to meet every possible need of the Johnson family. Learn more about our #yellowlaces campaign and other ways you can help at the link below.

YELLOW SHOELACES ATHLETE OUTREACH IN SUPPORT OF ISAAC JOHNSON, A 4 YEAR OLD FROM JANESVILLE BATTLING NEUROBLASTOMA CANCER

When Isaac Johnson was 2 years old, he was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer. Now age 4, this little champion has endured more than 30 chemotherapy and radiation treatments, 2 stem cell transplants, and 1 bone marrow transplant. He continues his battle today. The City of Janesville is rallying around him to support Isaac and his family. You may have seen or heard some of the local media coverage surrounding this support that includes actions by the Janesville Police Department, Craig High School, a myriad of local businesses, and an organization called United Patriot Missions that pairs veterans and civilians together to do good works in honor of a fallen service member.

If your athletic organization wants to join in this collective of people and organizations rallying to support Isaac and his family, we’re asking your athletic organization to do something special. Athletes and coaches are wearing yellow shoe laces to express their support of Isaac. They’re snapping a photo of their team wearing yellow laces during practices, warmups, or games and posting the images on their social media accounts. They’re leaving encouraging messages and tagging Isaac and his family on Isaac’s Facebook Page @IsaacStrongWisconsin to show their support!

Let Isaac and his family know your team is on Isaac’s team! We want to ensure that through all the suffering this family has endured, they know how much Isaac’s bravery has inspired and positively impacted others.

Veteran’s Day 2018 Gratitude & Appreciation to Partners

On this Veteran’s Day, I just wanted to express my gratitude and appreciation for the all the veterans who are a part of www.getupnationpodcast.com and www.unitedpatriotmissions.org. Your service continues to this day, and I’m honored to serve alongside you in these organizations.

I also want to express my profound respect and gratitude to Lisa Thompson who has allowed United Patriot Missions to serve a family facing pediatric cancer in honor of her son Dan, who sacrificed his life for our freedom in Afghanistan during February 2009. I had the privilege of knowing Dan and strive to honor his memory by helping and supporting Isaac Strong during United Patriot Missions’ Mission 1.

More information about Dan: https://thefallen.militarytimes.com/army-sgt-daniel…/3970239

To those who have served selflessly, are serving selflessly, and will serve selflessly, it is an honor to keep your company and to deploy your continued service in missions that create an America worthy of our fallen.

Very Respectfully,

Ben Biddick

Mission 1 Update: Thank you Aaron Kim, Inventor and CEO of www.blitzball.com

Just wanted to thank Aaron Kim, Inventor and CEO of www.blitzball.com for donating some Blitz Balls, bats, and an ultra-rare Silver Blitzball to Isaac Strong who is battling pediatric cancer. Less than 1 out of 1000 Blitzballs are silver. They were created to celebrate Blitzball’s 10th anniversary and are certainly an amazing collector’s item!

Blitzball was selected by Mensjournal.com as the 2012 Gear of the Year award winner (https://bit.ly/2AZSM97). Blitzball became “an internet sensation with over 2 million YouTube views along with being featured on other well-known media outlets such as the ESPN TV network, ESPN Magazine, Huffington Post, Bleacher Report, and Popular Science Magazine. With its sales almost doubling in each of the last two years, Blitzball is rapidly becoming a fixture in backyards everywhere (https://bit.ly/2qDClsX).”

Men’s Journal described why Blitzball won their award by saying “Blitzball’s solid surface, composed of 72 sides, cuts down on wind resistance, allowing the sub-one-ounce plastic ball to maintain velocity and spin furiously. Anyone can use it to master a beastly curveball or slider without risking a Tommy John injury.”

At United Patriot Missions, I can personally validate the following quote from the Journal Sentinel article available at https://bit.ly/2qDClsX about CEO Aaron Kim. “While much of the Blitzball’s success can be attributed to the product itself, it’s Kim’s personal connection to Blitzball fans and customers that really makes the business special…. ‘All customers and fans on our Blitzball page are special to me and if I can do anything extra for them, I will,’ said Kim, who gives away over $2,000 in video contest prizes each year in addition to providing bonus balls for Blitzball customers who also support the company on Facebook.”

United Patriot Missions is honored Aaron took the time out of his busy schedule to ensure Isaac and his family are able to have some fun family time playing Blitzball and making lasting family memories. Follow Isaac Strong, United Patriot Missions, and Blitzball today! Partner with us to create powerful, positive, and lasting impact!
