I think I slipped up and posted first in the "PT" forum first instead of here. Anyways, I'm currently serving in Afghanistan in Kandahar Province as an Infantry Platoon Leader for 3-71 CAV, 3 BCT, 10th MTN. I commissioned back in 2009 through ROTC from Southern Illinois with a history degree. While at ROTC I was able to complete Airborne school and "CTLT" shadowing an infantry PL at Fort Bragg. After IBOLC I went through Ranger School in class 6-10, then reported to 3 BCT, 10th MTN up at Fort Drum. There I trained my platoon in garrison for our upcoming deployment with two JRTC rotations (one as ANA, and one for our actual rotation). While at Drum I was also able to earn my EIB. Currently in Afghanistan we continue to find weapon and IED caches, and detain bad guys. As far as the future I'm trying to get a few of the guys in my Platoon to attend Ranger school upon redeployment, and as far as myself I'm trying to complete my Ranger Regiment application packet in order to get a date for RASP II when we get back. I look forward to future posts and the support from the Ranger community.
