I left home in September 2017 bound for Ft. Benning, Georgia to begin basic training. I entered into a world I did not know existed. I decided I was going to push through and do it to the best of my ability. I quickly realized that, even on days when I questioned my decision, that God would send someone to me to pray with or share my faith. God had me here for a reason and I needed to trust completely in Him.
I started on the line as a 240 gunner and traveled to a few different states to train, which tested me physically and even more so mentally. I went to selection for a reconnaissance platoon and was selected. I now serve, as a Sniper, with some of the best soldiers and greatest people I have ever met. I will soon be going through an advanced sniper course and airborne school.
I am currently stationed at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky, home of the 101st Airborne Division and am excited to see what God has in store for me next.”
