    Air Force Deployment

    I am tasked to deploy in support of a standard Air Force deployment, this will be my 3rd one. My wife decided to have us take family photos before I go and I am truly proud of this one that I wanted to share with people. I posted this on my facebook page, but feel this just wasn't enough. I wanted to share with more people.

    My brief story, I have served in the United States Air Force for over eight years now, six years as Security Forces where I deployed twice, once to Kyrgyzstan and the other one for a year to Baghdad Iraq as an effort to train the Iraqi Police on police procedures and tactics. I have served in Grand Forks ND, Azores Portugal, and McGuire AFB NJ. I now serve in the Cyber System Operations career field as a server administrator. I am deploying for my third time. I am married (10 Years - Ashley) with three children (Lucas - 9yrs, Dylan - 6yrd, Abbygale - 3yrs).
