"Edward (Eddie) Rausch is the proud son of a U.S. Marine Corps veteran. His father, Chuck, did his basic training at Camp Pendleton and served 8 years in the Corps. He was stationed at MCAS Futenma in Okinawa with Marine Aircraft Group (MAG) 16 during the Vietnam War and finished his service at Marine Corps Air Station (MCAS) 31 in Beaufort, SC where he had the opportunity to work with the Blue Angels. Eddie's grandfather, Frank Miller, was drafted to serve in the US Army during WWII but was the foreman at a lumber mill contracted by the military to build PT boats. It was decided that Frank could best serve the United States of America by supervising the construction of the PT Boats used in the Pacific theater...President John F. Kennedy served as Commander of PT-109 during WW II.
Upon graduating from High School Eddie tested for admittance into the US Air Force but decided to pursue college and a baseball scholarship. Eddie finished his college career at Arizona State University studying kinesiology. Eddie's work history includes key positions within management of companies like GUESS, Hilton Hotels and the Arizona Diamondbacks. He currently owns his own meeting planning company and splits time between that and working with Veteran Tickets Foundation. Eddie's goal to to make "Vet Tix" a household name and to someday fill every empty seat with a veteran, active duty soldier and their families!
Eddie considers it an honor and a privilege to be part of Veteran Tickets Foundation...he didn't take the opportunity to serve his country when he was younger but now is happily doing his part to give something to those who gave...the brave men & women who are now and have served our country!"
