I joined the army August 27th, 2008. I left active duty on June 11th, 2009 due to injuries. After that, I was enrolled into the IRR and joined the NY State Guard on the 8th of August, 2009. I deployed to Hurricane Irene, Hurricane Sandy, the November 2014 snowstorms, and a few other things. In mid 2014, I became the first transgender person to serve openly without repercussion in the US Military.
