I am a Major in the US Army deployed to Iraq in the Global War on Terrorism.
I am, at this writing, a 35 year-old Infantry Officer initially assigned as an S2(Intelligence Officer) for an Air Assault Infantry Battalion. We are here conducting full-spectrum operations in the Sunni Triangle of Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Seven months after arriving in Iraq, I was reassigned to a Military Transition Team(MiTT) to train the new Iraqi Army. Although I had served on active duty during the first five years of my military career, I left the military for four years, returning as a reservist shortly before 9/11. I had been in the Reserve/National Guard system for 3 years, my full-time job being that of a Sales Representative, when my unit was called up for this mission. I am proud to serve. I am married to a strikingly beautiful woman who is the light of my life, and we just welcomed our first child into the world. They are currently awaiting my return to sunny Southern California. While proud to be performing this mission, I eagerly await the day that I will return to them.
