Now, the father of two daughters with a third child on the way, Souder, an armorer with Bravo Company, 2nd Tank Battalion, Regimental Combat Team 7, from Rockville, Md., volunteered for and is currently serving on his first deployment to Afghanistan. Motivated to live life with no regrets, Souder hopes to deploy once more after his current deployment is finished.
