Recently, he has been accepted the challenge of competing a half-marathon at the Air Force Marathon at Wright-Matterson Air Force Base to raise money for the TACP Association. He will be running the half-marathon — approximately 12 miles — on Sept. 16, 2017 in Dayton, Ohio, home of the Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

“I have currently raised $865 as of this morning,” Zoglmann said. “My goal is to raise $1,000.”

The TACP Association is a 501c(19) non-profit veteran’s organization whose mission is to, Remember the Fallen, Honor the Living, and Aid Brothers in Need.” The Association provides support to members of the TACP Community and their families when they are in their darkest hours.  

“We have provided support to several TACPs, who were wounded in action and have assisted the unfortunate families of TACPs killed in action,” Zoglmann said. “Our goal is to relieve the financial pressures, so that healing and mourning may occur.”

The following is a small example of how the TACP Association has recently assisted veterans and their families:
