About the Creator

Blake Wayman is a U.S. Military Combat Veteran. During the September 11 attacks on the U.S.A., Blake sat in his high school classroom, watching the event unfold on the television. It was that specific day that influenced his decision to serve his country. Right after graduating High School, he enlisted in the United States Army.

Since receiving his honorable discharge from the military, Blake pursued a career in Health Care, working around children on a daily basis. In this position, he noticed many troops had to leave their children, other family members, and friends. Watching the children struggle with the separation, Blake became determined to do something to help them through their difficult time.

This determination led Blake to create Troop on the Stoop. Its intent is to give children of the military the battle buddy they need when their loved ones aren’t around. It’s a companion and will bring enjoyment to any military child going through a difficult time.
