Bio

I am a native of Enterprise, Alabama. I enlisted in the Army as a Private, E-1, and completed Infantry Basic/AIT at Fort Benning, GA. I was assigned to the 1-14th IN, 25th Infantry Divison in Schofield Barracks, Hawaii. I was given an opportunity to go to Special Forces selection and I seized the moment. After completing Special Forces Assessment and Selection (SFAS), I was reassigned to the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne) in Fort Bragg, North Carolina. I served on ODA 784, 3rd BN, 7th SFG(A) and ODA 721, 1st BN, 7th SFG(A). During my time at 7th Group, between teams, I was able to go and be a Drill Sergeant at Fort Benning for two years. After returning to 7th Group, I served on my second ODA and then at the Group level. In 2002, I attended Officer Candidate School and was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant.

As an Infantry Officer, I attended the Infantry Officer Basic Course at Fort Benning, GA and was able to stay at Fort Benning with the 1/507th Airborne school as a Company Executive Officer and the Battalion S-4 Supply Officer. I then attended degree completion at Troy University earning my Bachelors of Science in Criminal Justice with a minor in Military Science. Shortly after degree completion, I was assigned to the 1-145th AV Regiment as the S-1. I was given another amazing opportunity as an Infantry Officer, to attend the Aviation Captain’s Career Course. This meant I would get firsthand knowledge how the aviators conducted business, learn their thought process on air infiltration of troops as well as engagement criteria. I was able to give them the ground commander’s perspective and I truly believe it was a win win for the Infantry and the Aviation branches. From there, I received my orders for the 173rd ABCT and was heading to Germany. As the Asst. S-3 in the first every Airborne CAV unit (1-91 CAV), I worked in Plans and Air coordinations. I took command of B Troop, 1-91 CAV during our Afghanistan deployment and left the CAV heading to the recruiting world in Montgomery, AL. I was assigned as the S-3 and eventually took command of the Montgomery Recruiting Company. I had planned on serving many more years but God had a different plan. I was forced to medically retire with 22years and 6 months as Active Duty service.

 

Some of my assignments included:

Machine Gunner in the 25th Infantry Division (L), Schofield Barracks, HI

Engineer Sergeant, ODA 784, 3rd BN, 7th SFG(A), Fort Bragg, NC

Drill Sergeant, Fort Benning, GA
