|Awards:||Purple Heart Medal|
I served 3 years in the U.S. Army with the 101st Airborne Division. In 2006 I was injured by mortar shrapnel in Baghdad, Iraq. I was awarded the Purple Heart and Combat Action Badge. After several surgeries and months of physical therapy, I was medically discharged.
Currently I am working for the Pennsylvania DCNR as a Park Ranger. Hunting and Fishing have always been a part of my life, but never did it play such an important role than now. Not only the conservation of the outdoors, but the tranquility and peace it provides.
