- My Summary
I have been serving in the United States Army for 7 years. My time in service has included about 2 1/2-3 years of service in Iraq in combat environments. I am now a disabled veteran serving in the Army Reserve and working on getting a medical discharge due to my injuries. I work part time delivering pizza since I cannot find any work in my area, everyone wants to hire immigrants and high school kids but not trained, professional, disabled veterans...I guess. Anyway, I was introduced to scuba diving through the Wounded Warrior Project and have been invited to create and lead a dive team through an organization called the Warrior Scuba Project (www.warriorscubaproject.org). I am also looking to get further certifications and to advance my career as a scuba diver through conservation work and perhaps some part or full time employment.
