  • Malik started his law enforcement path early, inspired to serve. At 15, he joined the North Miami Beach Police as a Police Explorer and later served five years in the U.S. Navy, continuing in the U.S. Airforce National Guard.

    On March 26, 2023, Officer Daricaud was tragically shot in the neck during a traffic stop. Despite this, he remains stable and is courageously recovering. His journey ahead is tough, but he’s hopeful.

    During this time, his wife and son’s love supports Officer Daricaud. Yet, with hospital and rehab costs, plus lost income, his family faces financial challenges.

  • Blair Didion, a U.S. Army Medic from 2001-2008, bravely served two tours in Iraq. In 2006, he sustained multiple spinal fractures in combat, marking his service with valor. Born and raised in Sandusky, Ohio, Blair’s life post-service has been challenging.

    Recently, Blair, along with his wife and their beloved dog and cat, faced eviction and homelessness. Our organization stepped in to assist, ensuring they find a new home and regain stability. We’re committed to supporting Blair and his family during this difficult period.
