I desire a volunteer position that will benefit my broad professional background and capitalize on my strong work ethic. I enjoy working with the public in a team-oriented atmosphere, but also excel in an independent environment. Working for, and with, our military and veterans is my number one desire.

Aaron Embry

          San Diego, CA


My desire to give back comes from my personal experience with family and friends that have served our country. Like most everyone in the San Diego area, I feel deeply connected to the military. My father enlisted in the Navy post World War II and served during the Koran War, landing at Inchon aboard the USS Sutherland. I have many friends that are either retired or currently serving. I’m excited about the opportunity to help promote the benefits of Racquetball and Paddleball through the Military Adaptive Court Sports programs.

Raymond Bierner

          Glendale, AZ


AMPRO certified racquetball instructor volunteering with the Military Racquetball Federation to promote Arizona Veterans racquetball clinics for many years.  My motivation is to grow the sport under the theme of conditioning, camaraderie and competition.  I donate my efforts in memory of an uncle and cousin who lost their lives in the Bataan Death March and the Korean Conflict.  I appreciate the talent and inspiration that our troops and our veterans bring to my continued involvement in sharing racquetball.  Military Adaptive Court Sports will allow our outreach to grow.
