With a nod to Internet privacy, I am an Army combat veteran. I served in the military for eight years throughout the world to include stations in Georgia (twice), Korea, Texas, and Arizona. I have served three tours in Iraq, and three in Afghanistan, for a combination of over three years in overseas service. It has been the distinct honor of my life to serve with some of the greatest individuals and units in our armed forces – and those whom have worn or wear the uniform will continue to have my respect.

Today I am an avid supporter of the 2nd Amendment and fan of shooting sports, tactical gear, and all around range time. My political ideologies tend to independent Libertarian because I prefer to assess all the information and formulate my own opinion, vice being told what to think from the Ministry of Propaganda (i.e. news agencies). My hope is that by promoting my views and information here, it will inform as many as possible to formulate their own opinions and began asking serious questions.
