    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.

    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.
