Why we serve: Staff Sgt. John Tune, petroleum supply specialist

Staff Sgt. John Tune, of Newbern, N.C., is a petroleum supply specialist with Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. He joined the Army at 28, nearly a decade after graduating high school in 1985. "I can tell you this right here- I think the Army is one of the best decisions I have made in my life," said Tune. "I've done a lot of stuff; travel, education - pretty much everything I've wanted to do, I've done in the military."
