My MOS [military occupational security] is 1370. I started out on active duty. My first duty station was in 1987 as a Marine security guard in England. Did that for a year and a half. Then I went to the fleet, was with 3/8 for two years. Went on deployment to Liberia - during the time of Desert Storm - and left some people there, but manned the embassy down there Got off active duty, took about a year and a half and didn’t do anything and decided I wanted to come back and do the reserve thing. That was in ’93, and so I’ve been with Charlie Company ever since. On the outside, I just finished my first year of law school at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
