During Tyson's first deployment to Iraq in 2006, in support of the CASEVAC mission, a 120mm mortar landed a couple feet away for which he received his Purple Heart. Since leaving the Marine Corps in late 2012, Tyson moved home to Amarillo, Tx. He worked for Bell helicopter building V/CV-22's for the Marine Corps and Air Force, before leaving there to work at the Pantex plant as a production technician. Tyson is an avid outdoorsman who loves to hunt and fish any chance possible.
