I am presently running for Congress as a Republican. I have proudly served in the U.S. Army for 16 years. I first enlisted in 1986, during the height of the Cold War. I was a young Armor Crewman on the M1 Abrams Tank, 3rdArmored Division, and SPEARHEAD, GERMANY. I served in the illustrious “Iron Dukes”, under the command of the Late General Charles “Hondo”Campbell, who was a Lieutenant Colonel at the time. It was he who put me in for my Army Commendation Medal. I was there when the Berlin Wall came down, marking the end of Europe’s Infamous Iron Curtain!
But there is no other event in my mind that was more significant to our Country in recent years, than the Terrorist Attack on September 11th, 2001. Shortly after, I re-enlisted in the U.S. Army and volunteered for Deployment. I was deployed in November of 2004 and de-mobilized in January of 2006.
I served with the 216thMilitary Intelligence Company’s Ground Surveillance and Reconnaissance Platoon in Kirkuk Iraq, during Iraq’s first free election. I completed many missions and even survived a rocket attack, when the device failed to explode. I was awarded the Combat Action Badge. Unfortunately, I had two fellow soldiers who made the ultimate sacrifice for our Country. I will never forget their service to our Great Nation. I owe it to them to continue to serve and never give up the Good Fight.
This is the foundation on which I am campaigning.
