I served on active duty in the United States Marine Corps from 2003-2007. I served in the infantry out of 3rd Batallion 6th Marines stationed at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. I was honorably discharged in the winter of 2007 and deployed twice during my active duty time, Afghanistan in 2004, and Iraq in 2005.
Upon returning back to the WNY area in 2007 I attended Erie Community College for two years where I obtained my Associates Degree in Business and went on to finish my undergraduate studies at Medaille College where I obtained a Bachleors Degree. Currently, I am finishing my Masters Degree in Organizational Leadership at Medaille.
I am an active community leader and a very active advocate in the community for our military and veterans as I believe they are going to play a key role in the future of this country. Generations of veterans who wore the countries uniform have paved the way for a better tomorrow. Presently, these are the men and women out of this generation who raised their right hand to stand up and fight when the country needed them most after the tragedy of 9/11.
This blog serves for News Updates/Current Events for all of our Military and Veterans in the WNY area. If you have anything you would like for me to post to get the word out there I'd be glad to. I hope to network and reach out to members of our community by educating and raising awareness of all the great qualities our veterans and military have to offer.
