Where did you serve and what did you do?
I served in Kansas and was deployed for 13 months, in Iraq, as a Combat HET operator.
How are you #StillServing?
After serving in OIF/OEF, I volunteered nearly 6,000 hours serving survivors of sexual violence through hospital advocacy and working on a 24-hour crisis line. Those volunteer hours often involved 24-hour shifts, responding to local hospitals at all hours of the night to sit with survivors during forensic medical examinations. Today I serve my community as a therapist, continuing to work with those impacted by sexual violence. I continue to volunteer my time in support of LGBT youth.
Why do you do it?
I do it because I was called to do this in the very same way that I was called to serve my country.
