At the time of our deployment to Iraq, I had 20 years of service in the Military Police Corps. My experience consisted of 18 years as a noncommissioned officer in positions ranging from team leader to first sergeant. I have five operational deployments and one previous combat deployment to Somalia in 1993. While assigned to 519th MP Battalion, Fort Polk, LA, I deployed to Kosovo in support of peace keeping operations as a company operations NCO and as a First Sergeant I deployed my company to Taszar, Hungary in support of Training Task Force Warrior. After my tenure as a First Sergeant I performed duties as the Battalion S3 Operations Sergeant Major for approximately nine months and Battalion Command Sergeant Major for approximately three. Prior to our deployment to Iraq in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom 05-07, I assumed duties as the Intelligence noncommissioned officer for Task Force 519th MP. Since September 11, 2001, the 519th MP Battalion was fully engaged in support of the Global War on Terrorism. Immediately following the attacks of 911 our subordinate units deployed in support of Operation Noble Eagle, providing increased force protection at the Pentagon and other installations in the Virginia area. The Battalion Headquarters subsequently deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom OEF 1, Kandahar, Afghanistan, January 2002 through July 2002 and Operation Iraqi Freedom OIF 1, Baghdad, Iraq, March 2003 through March 2004.
