In the shadows of 9/11, we took the fight to Al-Qaeda on October 7, 2001 in the far reaches of Afghanistan. On March 19, 2003 we would invade Iraq reminding the world yet again that evil and oppression cannot hide from our servicemen. Both Operation Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom were fought by our Nation's first all-volunteer fighting force. Like the generations before us, we answered the bell when our Nation called and continue to do so as the War On Terror continues to this day. It was an honor to be a small part of this effort and I urge all Veterans of OIF/OEF to share their stories and experiences for their families, children, grandchildren, and future generations. A brief sample of my personal video is below. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story soon.
