Candidate

I went to Basic Training at Ft. Benning, GA, on August 17th, 2000. and graduated on December 15th, 2000, as an Infantryman. I went on to 11M school (Mechanized Infantry). Upon completion of that school, my first duty station was Fort Hood, TX, and I was in C Co 1/5 Cav from February 2001 until October of 2003.

 

While at NTC for my second time, I re-enlisted to go to  Fort Drum, NY. I was assigned to A Co 2/87 IN, and within a month of being there, I was on my way to Afghanistan for the first time,  Almost 2 years later, we were on our way back to Afghanistan, and this time we stayed for 16 months. While in Afghanistan the second time, I re-enlisted again, and went back to Fort Benning. I was in Fort Drum for almost exactly 4 years, and left in October of 2007. I was assigned to A Co (ExFor) 1/29 IN for two years. I then returned to Fort Drum, and was assigned to A Co 4/31. I then deployed to Iraq, right before the handoff to the Iraqi's in 2010. I graduated Drill Sergeant school on August 16th, 2012. I was assigned to D Co 2/60 IN, and reported to Fort Jackson in October of 2012.

I dislocated my shoulder and had surgery in 2013. The surgery didn't fix my shoulder, and a year after my surgery, I still didn't have full use of my shoulder. My official date of retirement is April 16th, 2015. I wasn't done serving my country, and I'm ready to keep going!
