Where did you serve and what did you do?
I am a 20 year Veteran of the Marine Corps. I served during Desert Shield/Desert Storm and Operation Sea Signal with JTF 160. When in the Marines I was a Combat Engineer so as part of the initial breach into Kuwait and during Operation Sea Signal I was initially tasked with building the migrant camps, then coordinating minor construction projects for the Joint Services.
How are you #StillServing?
After retirement, I found a job as an Operations Manager but knew that wasn’t a long-term job for me. Then I became an insurance professional and enjoyed helping people so I stayed with that for 11 years but in 2008 the housing crisis forced me to find a new career and I ended up with a non-profit organization called Still Serving Veterans that helps Veterans with their transition and employment needs. That is where I am serving to this day. We have helped thousands of veterans find new careers and have helped thousands of veterans file VA claims for benefits.
Why do you do it?
I love my job and do it because I have the opportunity to help other veterans.
