I was born in Ithaca, New York, and I was raised in New Bern, North Carolina. I graduated from high school in 1989, and joined the U.S. Army as an M-1 Tanker 2 months later. I fought in the Gulf War as an M-1 Tanker in the legendary 1st Infantry Division, also known as the Big Red One. We were awarded the Valorous Unit Award for extraordinary heroism in war. I graduated from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in 2005 with a Bachelor of Social Work Degree. The chair of the Department of Sociology and Social Work, Dr. Sarah V. Kirk inspired me to write a book about the war, and my experiences. I wrote the book in the summer of 2003. I chose social work because I wanted to help other veterans. I love studying the bible, reading, writing, landscaping, exercising, and golf.
