    I Am A Beacon

    I am a beacon when all other lights go out. I am an angel in a hellish waste land. I am a sheep dog keeping the wolves at bay. I stand on guard ready to throw myself into the fight. I am a hero when I am needed and forgotten by many when I am not. I am hope, I AM A SOLDIER.

    I fight battles daily.

    I train hard, eat hard, sleep hard. I exercise regularly. My brain makes my job difficult but on the outside I fit in with the lads because I am, first and foremost, a man. As a soldier I have to be strong, confident, composed and calm under fire. I have suffered numerous...

    13 years and going, 2 tours to Iraq,

    1 to Afghanistan, 2 rotations to Korea, and another Middle East rotation coming up. I am an American soldier, and wouldn't trade the experience for anything.

    My profile is about being a father of 2

    and a husband in the Army. I don't normally share my experiences with anyone but due to the nature of my job, some things will get omitted. Hope everyone can relate in one way or another.
