Land of the Free Foundation is pleased to announce that Dr. Bill Krissoff, MD will be our guest of Honor and Speaker at this year’s Land of the Free Foundation Golf Classic Dinner.  At a time in life when most military personnel are collecting retirement for their years of service to our Nation, at age 61, then Dr. Krissoff was just beginning his military service. Dr. Krissoff was a successful Orthopedic Surgeon in Truckee California with a thriving practice.  He and his wife Christine also had two sons 1st Lt. Nathan (“Nate”) Krissoff and 2nd Lt. Austin Krissoff both serving our nation in the Marine Corps.  Sadly in December 2006 Nate was killed when an IED hit his Humvee.  How any parent copes with the loss of his/her child in combat is inexplicable, but the way Dr. and Mrs. Krissoff honored their son is truly remarkable.  Dr. Krissoff at age 61 joined the Navy Medical Corps to use his significant talent as a surgeon to help Marines on the battlefield in Iraq and Afghanistan!  Dr. and Mrs. Krissoff will be our honored guests at this year’s event and share with us a piece of their story and how honored they were and are to help the men and women of the Armed Services and their families who work and sacrifice every day to ensure that we will always live in the Land of the Free!
