Haiti Impacts Ranger Up

Updated: January 18, 2010


Folks, one of Ranger Up’s own has a family member MIA in Haiti right now and we’d really appreciate your help.

Kelly Bruno, one of Ranger Up’s sponsored athletes, world record holder in the Iron Man, frequent volunteer for the Wounded Warrior Project, and the sweetest girl you will ever meet has lost contact with her father, Doctor Richard Alan Bruno.

Doctor Bruno was doing humanitarian work with the Lynn University Group. He was in the Hotel Montana when the quake hit.

We realize that the guys and gals on the ground are working their asses off to save every man, woman, and child they can, so we’re not asking you to do anymore than you are already. But, we’d truly appreciate it from the bottom of our hearts if you passed this on to every member of our community that you can and asked them to keep their military eyes open for Doctor Bruno. Any word (of any sort) would be appreciated ([email protected]).

Kelly is truly like a little sister to the guys at RU and is one of the best people you will ever meet. We love her dearly and this is hitting us hard. Please help if possible.

Thank you.

Nick Palmsiciano
President, Ranger Up

    We are praying for you over here at Macdill. Hopefully the troops we have just deployed over there can help find your father, and I will be forwarding this to everyone I know that is deployed in Haiti.

    I am looking for any information on Courtney Hayes. She is a student on the trip with Dr Bruno. I am from her hometown of Douglas, GA and she is one of our own. We are all very worried about her and the rest at the Hotel Montana. I hope the troops can hurry and find them. Time is quickly running out! They really really need all the troops possible to get resources to the Hotel Montana. Please post any news on what is going on down there at the hotel.
