#Fact
1Amongst the many charities he supports, Richard is a dedicated supporter of Disabled Veterans of America. Many of RSJ t-shirts (most notably on Creation Stands website) lead to donation to DVA.
2Richard's fear of flying on airplane inspired Rob Benedict (of the band Louden Swain) to write a song called "Trigger Finger" (album Sky Alive - released 2015).
3There are 37+ Richard Speight Jr. T-shirt designs dedicated to him. [2016]
4In Jericho Season 2 Episode 6 playing a cop called Bill, he and some others steal army uniforms and hold up an army convoy.

Warren 'Skip' Muck.
