"I joined the Army because I wanted to help others. Over the last nine years, I have had the opportunity to deploy around the world and help those in need. The only feeling better than helping someone is the feeling I get every day when I put on the uniform. I have fun every day, and it's because I love what I do and who I work with. I am proud of my profession and I couldn't ask for better teammates! Never Daunted! Sappers In!"
