I proudly served our great nation for 10 years before leaving the service in 2002. I had the honor to serve in the 82nd Airborne Division, America's "Guard of Honor" from 1992-1995.
In 1994 I was part of an elite team that re-enacted the D-Day invasion by parachuting into France for the 50th Anniversary Ceremonies.
I also served under the 1/183 Attack Helicopter Battalion working on the armament and electronics systems for the AH-64 Apache.

Picture of me and two buddies in RAF Alconbury, England just prior to boarding the C-130 in the background, flying over the English Channel, and parachuting down outside of St. Mere Eglise, France for the 50th Anniversary of D-Day Celebration, June 1994.
This is a photo I took after exiting the C-130 over St. Mere Eglise France. I had just checked to make sure I had a full chute and no malfunctions before managing to get this shot off of a paratrooper below me as we descended.
You can clearly see the French countryside and hedge rows in the background.
