What's In Your Bag?


Who is Kurtis T.?

Keeper of the Door, Iraq/Afghanistan War Veteran, Brooklyn Native

What’s in your bag right now?

A NY Post, a pen, my contact lenses, and my dog tags

What is one thing in your bag that you cannot live without?

My contact lenses.  I need them to see cause I’m blind as a bat!

Why do you keep the dog tags with you?

They remind me of who I am, what I’ve been through, and what I’ve become. They help me remember all the hard work I put in so I never give up on anything. I did 4 tours in Iraq and 3 tours in Afghanistan, and was overseas for about 8 years. 

Why do you wear that STATE pin everyday?  

Because I’m supporting the movement…supporting the cause!  I’m a proud American with 2 kids, and I love the idea of supporting our own.
