David Nix

Lead Military Ambassador - DOMA

Hope Mills, NC

United States

Hello all, my name is David Nix. I am Active duty U.S. Army E-7 with 13 and a half years of service as of April of 2019. I am a husband of 11 years and father to one beautiful daughter and handsome little boy. I was raised in a Christian home, but never felt like it was me. When I was in high school, I discovered the New Age section in the local book store and started on the adventure that was Runes and Wicca/Pagan. I felt more at home, but still didn’t feel quite right. 
I still have my first set of runes from the early 2002. I joined the Army in 2005 and deployed to Iraq in 2006. As anyone who has ever been to war can tell you, it changes you. I tried to be normal during that time and gave being a Catholic a try. Needless to say, that wasn’t for me.
 After this, I started back down the road of learning and started on the road I would later learn as Asatru. I continued down this road quietly and kept to myself. I struggled with depression and anxiety due to work and family. After getting tired of being miserable, I decided to put my family and my faith first. I requested a religious accommodation and needless to say this put me on a highway for the Community, not just a path. Shortly following this decision, I encountered other practitioners who, like me, felt like Fort Bragg needed an Asatru community that was in accordance with Army EO policies; because no one likes meeting a group only to learn that they are racist or sexist. We have been on an amazing journey since then.       
I look forward to serving the community as the Director of Military Affairs and Lead Military Ambassador.

Adam Mohammed

Jacksonville, NC

United States

Hail brothers and sisters! My name is Adam Mohammed, and I am 28 years of age. I am currently serving as active duty in the Marine Corps. I was raised in Florida and am currently in Camp Lejeune. My journey to Asatru was probably the best thing for my life as I now feel connected to the gods. It has been 3 years since I've started this Journey and I'm proud of it.


My main goal as an Ambassador is to bring my Norse-Pagan brothers and sisters together, and form an everlasting community. I want our folk to never feel alone, nor shunned by our current society, but to have a safe place of practice, and honor the gods as they see fit. One day I hope to Create a kindred.


As for passion, being around an outside fire with drinks and telling tales is something I very much favour; especially when that includes meeting new people and connecting with them. I also have a strong love for music and did a few singing performances.


As a Military Ambassador, it is my goal to make sure that everyone has a safe place in unity as well as to educate my folk in the ways of the gods to the best of my ability. In the days to come, I hope to meet and speak to all of you, brothers and sisters!

Anthony Powers

Fort Benning, GA

Greetings to all my name is Anthony Powers, I'm currently an active duty SSG, serving the last 11 years as an MP currently stationed at Fort Benning, GA with my beautiful wife of 11 years and our three sons, although we do live in Alabama. I am currently working on my religious accommodation thru the Army and look forward to helping othere with the same goal.
     I grew up in a strict Catholic household and fell out of faith as I grew up. Eventually after some years in the Army I had a calling to the Norse gods and goddesses that drew me in and ignited a fire that has not been stopped to this day. I hope to continue my education by eventually becoming a Gothi, and I would like to develop something here at Fort Benning for the trainees as well as serving Alabama to the best of my ability.

Charles O'Reilly

Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
 

Hail! My name is Charles O'Reilly I am currently an active duty Canadian Forces Member and I have been for over 6 years. I am originally from Newfoundland, but I have lived all across the country and have been able to meet many people from our community along the way. 

Born in to a Catholic home, it wasn't until my grandmother showed me that there is a different way that I discovered Asatru. Since I was 13 I have studied as much about Pagan and Heathenry as I could. I started with Celtic Druidism and worked quickly towards where I am today. I am very active helping to build local kindreds as well as serving my community as a Gothi. 

I received my religious accommodation in 2017 while on tour. Since then I have helped many people achieve the same goal as well as developing a community on base. I have also begun the necessary processes to ensure that Asatru is recognized by the entire Armed Forces. With my ultimate goal to become a Padre in progress I look forward to serving the entire community for a long time to come.

Christopher Ray

Oak Ridge, Tennessee

United States

Hello! My name is Christopher Ray, I'm currently an Active Duty Army Paratrooper (19 years) stationed at Fort Lee, Va with my wife and two of my three children. I'm 36, originally from Oak Ridge, TN, but my dad was Army so I grew up all over. I'm in the process of becoming a Gothi, I truly feel called to that. I am very excited to be part of the Ambassador program for TAC and I am looking forward to all that we are going to accomplish as a community. Other things I enjoy doing; I'm a youth football coach, I'm the Chaplain for my son's Scouts BSA troop, I volunteer to help my daughter's dance studio with security during special events, fight sports (jujitsu, boxing, mma), 3 gun (modern or cowboy), hunting (bow/rifle/spear), deep sea fishing, wood work, and I'm trying to get into blacksmithing.

Levi Simmons

Yokosuka, Japan

Hail! I am Levi Simmons, I’m coming up on my 9th year of active service as a Hospital Corpsman Second Class (E5) in the US Navy. I am currently stationed in Yokosuka, Japan and have been in Japan for 6 Years now, I have served on a ship, hospitals and with the Marines. I, like many here, grew up in a Christian home. I never felt quite right whenever we went to church and it didn’t seem like the path I was meant to follow. About 10 years ago I had a pull to the Norse gods, but I, at the time, didn’t think of following them in a spiritual way. It took many years of learning and finally finding groups of people with the same mindset that I was able to call myself a heathen. I aim to educate, encourage and inspire other heathens and pagans who are interested in the path but do not know where to start. I look forward to serving with the community and assisting where I can.

Emily Litvak

Ramstein, Germany

I am an Active Duty SSgt (E-5) in the US Air Force and hit my 8 year mark in February 2020. I'm married with 4 cats and am currently stationed at Ramstein AFB, Germany until 2022.
I've so far spent my career overseas and have deployed twice to undisclosed locations in southwest Asia in 2014 and the middle east in 2017.
Like many, my family was Christian but for whatever reasons I was never christened/baptized. I found paganism in my "rebellious" teenage years but floated between different types until I joined the USAF in 2012.
It was then, in BMT one of the Circle leaders told me about Asatru. I spent the next few years reading and learning what I could from books, blogs, and people I came across before, for lack of a better word, experimenting. I finally knew where I fit in in the world; its been 7 years since that first encounter.
While deployed in 2017 I discovered TAC and knew I wanted to grow further in my faith and community. 
I have previously been a Lay Leader and have worked with Chaplains across the globe; I hope that by becoming an Ambassador I can better assist my military and Asatru community.
