Heroes of Texoma: Christopher Couch

WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) -

This week's Hero of Texoma joined the Marine Corps right out of high school and now owns 3 Wichita Falls businesses.

He served in Okinawa, Japan and San Diego, California. One of his many jobs in the Marines was as a cook. 

After the Marines, Christopher and his wife moved to Dallas where he became a chef.

Now in Wichita falls, Christopher Couch is the owner of The Gypsy Kit Cafe, Gypsy Uncorked, and Gypsy Kit Food Truck.

In 2010, Christopher decided that he wasn't done serving his country and joined the 236th Engineering Company of the Texas National Guard.  

"I was active duty Marine Corps a long time ago and I missed it. I wanted to get back in and serve my country some more. A lot of people saw a lot of footage of my guys down in Houston doing all the swift water rescues and driving the big trucks through the water. That was predominantly the 236 on those videos," said Christopher Couch. 

He says that the hard work and dedication he learned while serving has helped his businesses grow.

This past weekend, Christopher and his wife won first place in the food truck competition held in downtown Wichita Falls.

If you know someone deserving of this recognition, let us know about them by sending your nominations to news@kauz.com. 

Be sure to include your contact information and any photos you have so we can continue to shine a light on all the Heroes of Texoma.
