Recent Activity  -


Ever since I was 10 years old, when our country was attacked by Islamic extremists, I wanted to be a United States Marine. I finally achieved that dream at the age of 18. I served for four years as a Rifleman and deployed to Afghanistan twice. I am now a husband, father of two, and a published author.

Military Experiences

Jul 2010 - Jan 2014
L Co
Radio Operator (Platoon and Squad)
Served as an 0311, but also had to become just as proficient with radios as an 0621. Was the squad radio operator on my first deployment, where I was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Combat Distinguishing Device. Still a Lance Corporal, I became the platoon radio operator (this billet is usually held by a sergeant) for my second deployment.
