Bio 

When I joined the Army, it was a decision that changed my life....for the better. I was the "cliche" of an angry out of control kid who had been issued an ultimatum by his dad. I chose to get away in the quickest way possible. During the ensuing 4 years, I had the typical first-termer attitude. When I re-enlisted, I gave back to my country while I became a Night Stalker, my proudest moment ever.
