A fallen veteran has left behind a legacy to those who have been touched by his life and service.
Erick Foster’s name and heart continues to thrive after he was killed by an insurgent fire in August 2007 through a recently established non-profit organization that reaches out to local veterans.
Foster was just 29 years old when he died in Iraq, but a close friend made it his mission to shine his compassion for others through Team Foster.
“Erick was a big part of who I was and who I became. I fell in love with the military and the army,” Nick Liermann, CEO and Founder of Team Foster, said.
Liermann served active duty as a captain in the U.S. Army during Operation Iraqi Freedom and currently serves as a JAG officer in the U.S. Army Reserve.
Foster and Liermann buddied up back in college and that’s where the dedication for the United States military was sparked.
