I've been in the Corps seven years. I started out as an infantry officer, and did two MEU deployments with the second one in Afghanistan with 26th MEU. I volunteered for intel, and was immediately sent to intel school when I returned from the MEU. Subsequently graduated from the Intel Officer's Course and went to intel battalion. Deployed for OIF I, did two deployments with intel battalion over here to Iraq. Then they gave me orders to go down to infantry battalion and be an S-2. That's five deployments in seven years.
