Recent Activity  -


I served for ten years. That time has had me work with MP's, Armored Artillery, Stryker Infantry as a combat medic, and as a Clinic NCOIC at Ft. Hood. I've learned a lot about running an Aid Station and being a line medic as well as the details behind providing garrison medical care under the Military Health System.

Military Experiences

Feb 2014 - Feb 2015
A Co
Department NCOIC
I worked as the NCOIC for the Pediatric Department at CRDAMC. This job required me to manage the collective work of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, and various other administrative personnel. It truly opened my eyes to the struggles of delivering a relevant, viable health care system to not only soldiers, but their families as well.
Apr 2012 - Feb 2014
I ran a Battalion Aid Station for day to day sick call issues as well as long term health care for the soldiers of this battalion. I also manage the day to day operations and medical qualifications of 34 medics through 6 team leaders.
Dec 2007 - Dec 2010
Bravo Btry Senior Medic
I worked as a senior medic for, at some point, every battery in the battalion. The bulk of my time as senior medic was for Bravo Battery during our deployment into southern Iraq.
Jun 2005 - Dec 2007
57th MP
Company Senior Medic
This was my first deploying unit. I was slotted (for reasons beyond me) in a SSG position as a PFC. I was the senior medic for this company during its 15 month deployment in Baghdad.


(3 years, 5 months)
Apr 2011 - Apr 2012
Afghanistan ribbon
Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF) - Afghanistan
The unit, having been spread across 13 forward bases and out posts, had small aid stations operating at almost each of these locations. I ran an Aid Station with three junior medics out of COP Edgerton. I eventually took over our main Battalion Aid Station at COP Shoja before taking over as senior company medic with Alpha Company at COP Mushan.
Sep 2008 - Sep 2009
Iraq ribbon
Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)
I was the senior medic for Bravo Battery in charge of a small aid station that operated out of Joint Security Station Hashimiya in southern Iraq.
Aug 2006 - Oct 2007
Iraq ribbon
Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF)
I was the senior medic for an MP company running a Police Training Team mission for 15 months in Baghdad. With out a central aid station or PA, I managed coordinated care for 160 soldiers through 3 platoon medics and a near by TMC on Camp Liberty. This included maintaining Class VIII supplies for the company during combat operations.
