My Bio ALL PROCEEDS FOR BOOK DONATED TO WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT IN SUPPORT OF TROOPS
Being an urban Irish Catholic from the northeast and a graduate of Upper Darby High School, I continued my education in quite a different atmosphere by attending the Virginia Military Institute; a southern school rich in its own culture and heritage. Through the rigid military lifestyle and tough academic load we bear came a great brotherhood with many of my classmates.
Upon graduation I became an officer in the US Army's Armor (Tank) Corps. I was in the 1st Battalion, 12th Regiment of the 1st Cavalry Division. I was enjoying my duty as a platoon leader, my life as a married man to my love, Amanda Meehan, and 'fathering' our three puppies.
In Oct of '06, I was deployed to Baqubah, Iraq (Diyala Province) for 15 months where my life and outlook on life would forever be changed. What my men and I endured is a story not heard nearly enough as we watched a city crumble before us, and fought to save it .
