I am a Veteran of the War on Terror. I joined with the intention of changing the world for the better only to learn we were doing the most damage. I can choose to change my life and its a journey every day. I work with Iraq Veterans Against the War(ivaw.org) as an organizer in the Colorado territory. I studied PoliSci and History at UW-La Crosse and love longboarding. I refused re-deployment to Iraq when I was re-called in 2009 and now live for each day.
