Branch of Service: National Guard
Conflict: Iraq War (2003-)
Years of Service: 2002-present
Justin is my only child and since a very young age, he has wanted to be in the military. His young dreams were to be a fighter pilot but when he had to start wearing glasses, he realized that was not possible. At 19, he joined the National Guard and completed basic training at Ft Benning. He has just returned from a year’s deployment in Iraq. He is still serving full-time with the National Guard as a training NCO. I am so proud of the man that he has become and the choice that he has made to serve this great country. To all of our troops…past, present and future…I thank you for my freedom!!!
