My military specialty was Admistrative Clerk. I had a secondary military occupational specialty as a Military Police. I had one tour in Okinawa. I went to Somalia for 2 weeks from Dec 92 to Jan 93 for "Operation Restore Hope." I discharged in 1999 and my dream came true in Feb 2003. I became a licensed barber. My skills have had Spike Lee receiving a cut from me in Natchitoches, LA. I enrolled in college in Aug 2018. I am due to graduate with my BA in Addiction Studies. I will work full-time as a substance abuse counselor. This is my purpose because of my past struggles with addiction.
