SCTCC Student
4 years Active Duty 101st Airborne Division
Current National Guard


I decided to join the military because I needed a challenge, I joined in 2016 and I was stationed at Ft Campbell KY 101st Airborne Division. I was assigned with Charlie Troop 1-32 CAV 1BCT as the Brigades long range reconnaissance unit. In 2017 I went to Tunissa, Africa to train troops and in 2019 was in Iraq for 10 months as Aerial Reaction force and QRF for the Seals and 19th Special Forces Group.

I am grateful for the experience, I learned more than I could ever imagined and made friends with people all over the world. I would go back in a heartbeat.
