Where did you serve and what did you do?
1987-1992 (Active Duty), 1992-2009 (Active Reserves). I retired as an HM1 (FMF/SCW). Went to Iraq with NMCB25 in 2006 and served as a Convoy Security Element Medic.
How are you #StillServing?
I created a 6-song music EP titled Forever 29 (released digitally in April 2019), and am donating 25% of the proceeds to the USO. I have also started a group called Soldier Songs and Voices in my home town to get veterans of all musical levels together to help share their stories through music. Writing lessons and even some guitar lessons are available. I feel pretty blessed and lucky to have this discussed in the February issue of VFW Magazine.
Why do you do it?
I love my fellow brothers and sisters and want to help in whatever way I can.
