    How'd you end up at Walter Reed? What is Glocks Hero and how'd you get it?

    MOS? Type of job you expect to get at Glock?

    And welcome. Glad you could join us.

    By the way, I'm in the Army Guard and did a tour in Iraq as a 19K (tanker). I'm in the process of reclassing to 19D (cavalry scout) in preparation for going to Afghanistan.

    I got pretty messed up in Iraq. My job was Infantry (11b). I dont know what kind of job I would want there but the people are awesome there. It would be great to get a job with quite a few of my kin (Marines). My last time I had a big chunk of shrapnel go through the back of my head and Ive been at Walter Reed since July of 06. Glock Heroes is every year at the SHOT show they honor someone for doing extraordinary stuff. In my couple of tours in Iraq I was awarded a few things. So they gave me an award and gunny got me a gun.

    What unit were you with? How did you get wounded? Where did you do your tours in Iraq? How are you doing now?

    I was with 1/506th IN, took part in OIF "2.5" as part of 1st and 2nd MEF. Got out in 2006.

    I hope that you've made a full recovery. What do you plan to do now? Did you get a picture of you with the Gunny and your new Glock?

    I was with 2/7 marines and 3/1 marines in fallujah in the invasion in april of 04. I got a couple of pieces of shrapnel in the knee there and got shot twice. In the army I was in the 187th of the 101. I got some rpg shrapnel in my head a couple times and took a bullet in the ass. I got some pics with the gunny of course but not with the glock. That is in Austria being made just for me.:cool:
