Marine Veteran
Roy Oakman was raised by a single mom in Queens, NY. He enlisted at age 17 to escape a dangerous gang culture and poverty.

Roy proudly served for over 30 years in the Marine Corps. He was stationed around the world starting in infantry, served as a drill seargent for 3 years, and retired as an Engineer Equipment Officer with a rank of E-9.

It is believed that Roy's exposure to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War was a factor in his eventual loss of kidney function. Roy was told his only chance of avoiding dialysis is to find a living kidney donor.

Roy is exceedingly proud to be a Marine. He is hoping someone will be HIS hero and come forward as a kidney donor.
