Where did you serve and what did you do?
Camp Pendleton, Ca. HMLA-367 F/L, GULF WAR. I was a Huey/Cobra mechanic and maintenance inspector, in addition to numerous sub and/or assistive positions.
How are you #StillServing?
In 2018 I developed a method to combat our veteran suicide debacle and have been versing our veterans, and/or veteran support organizations in the Ville. I’ve also identified previously unknown medical engineering to ensure vets no longer must suffer in silence. In addition, I’ve also developed and innovated numerous systems and protocols to allow more inclusiveness to our mobility challenged disabled veterans. I then share my discoveries and innovation with our warriors.
Why do you do it?
I do this because I follow “The Knights Code,” also because many in the Ville will have moved onto something more interesting long before our welcome home parades end and confetti settles. Because our numbers shall only reduce as time trudges through each season. Especially, because if we don’t remain one another’s keeper, the wolves will circle and lay waste to any that remain.
I don’t believe I can surpass the eloquence of General Douglas MacArthur in his 12 May 1962 speech to West Point Cadets titled, Duty, Honor Country. In essence, I feel incredibly honored to be afforded the opportunity to share my vast education and resulting toil with my brothers and sisters from other mothers.
