Veteran

US ARMY | Honorable Discharge

On my 6th year of service I was catastrophically injured by an IED while attempting (and succeeding) to save the life of an Afghan National Army soldier, as well as at least 3 other soldiers near a “minefield” of IEDs. More than 3 years later I was honorably discharged, medically retiring from the United States Army. I was awarded the Silver Star, Purple Heart, and later became the USO Soldier of the Year, and was awarded and inducted into the Honorable Order of St. Barbara.
