I have often heard it said that the hardest thing to do is talk about ones personal experience. I guess it is difficult because people have been through so many challenging experiences throughout their life. For me, it was quite easy. The most challenging experience for me was my first combat tour, Operation Iraqi Freedom III, 22 August 2005 to 31 October 2006. From pre-deployment to redeployment, problems surfaced at multiple levels. I have spent my entire military career preparing for combat. Yet, when the time finally came, my preparation for the role would be extremely tested. For this reason the experience gained from this first combat tour was the most challenging for me.
