Afghanistan 2001-2009

With 1st Force Recon at the USMC MWTC on the evening of September 10, 2001. Within hours our whole world would change as we shifted gears from training mode to operations. After doing briefings for Force Recon at Camp Pendleton and the PJ Rescue Squadron at Nellis AFB, I was in the Pakistan border region by the end of 2001, and in Afghanistan or Iraq every year for the next ten years, honored to be with some of the finest American and coalition sons, daughters, fathers, and mothers.
