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.
