Favorite thing about the military: Meeting new people and working in diverse environments.

What I've learned being a soldier: Treat others as you would like to be treated.

What inspires you to be a Soldier: Being able to help others.

How many times have you been deployed and what years/locations? 3 times 1) 2005- Kandahar, Afghanistan 2) 2008- Tallil, Iraq 3) 2013- KAIA, Afghanistan

What's this deployment been like for you? So far it has been a great learning experience working in a NATO environment.

What do you enjoy most about your deployment and the mission you're supporting? What I enjoy most is that this mission is a challenge for logisticians. The physical environment of Afghanistan calls for creativity when planning redeployment and retrograde. We truly are making history by supporting the operation while simultaneously drawing down our footprint.

What do you miss most about Fort Hood and your family? Spending the weekends at home in the Texas Hill Country with friends and family.
