In 2009, after graduating from college, I enlisted in the US Army with a seat in Officer Candidate School. Once through the schools and assigned to a unit, I volunteered several times for deployment to Afghanistan. In late 2011, I was picked up by 214th Fires Brigade to join Security Force Assistance Team 28. We deployed to Tarin Kowt, Afghanistan, the following spring.
On 20 May 2012, our unit was hit by a suicide bomber. CPT Jesse Ozbat and 2LT Tobias Alexander were killed in action. I was amung the wounded. After recovery, I retired in the fall of 2014.
I'll be using this site for various purposes, likely to include posting my thoughts on topics that need more attention. Check back in the future.
