About Mur

US Army & Reserves 1986-2005, served at Ft Knox, Hood, Jackson, Benning, & DLI. My passion is definitely serving our deserving elderly population. Since leaving military service in '05, I've devoted my life to enriching lives of the elderly in many ways. I hold a bachelor's in Organizational Leadership and a master's in Healthcare Administration, as well as a license in NC as a Nursing Home Administrator. My lovely wife and I recently created a nonprofit charity called Senior Compassion Foundation to serve older veterans and seniors by taking them out of long-term care facilities for the day to do activities and excursions. We have 6 kids, 3 grandchildren, and a host of elder friends 90+ years old or older.
