Derrick - Owner Operator
Just some random guy from Blue Springs. A former United States Marine infantryman, military police, Fire Fighter, EMT, and gun nut. Military service took Derrick through Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Syria, Turkey, Iraqi, Ireland, and most of the United States. Derrick is an adrenaline junky with an overriding desire to always do the right thing. A value of honor, integrity, and honesty have guided Derrick though multiple successful business ventures in the civilian sector and led him to now be the owner of the Target Time facility.
