Where did you serve and what did you do?
I was an Army Medic and did 2 tours in Iraq. The first was 30 days after I graduated AIT I deployed with Charlie Company 4th Support Battalion 4 Infantry Division. I was stationed at Camp Taji, Iraq and worked in the level 2 clinic. The 2nd time I was with 4/3 ACR and worked to keep our pilots healthy and flying while at Taji and BIAP. We did a 15-month tour during the last deployment.
How are you #StillServing?
I am very active in our community through work with the McCleary Bear Festival and our local VFW Post 5564. Through the Bear Festival, I have held many positions. I help to organize the festival and find vendors. At our post, I have been the Post Quartermaster & Adjutant for the past year and a half and will continue to serve our post. I also help organize fundraising events for our post and community events like our E-Waste Recycling Event. This year I will also be stepping up and holding an office for District 5.
Why do you do it?
To give back to our community. They supported me when I was deployed and now it is my turn to give back to them and to support other Veterans.
