Introduction
I'm the author of "They Fought for Each Other: The Triumph and Tragedy of the Hardest Hit Unit in Iraq," and I work as a freelance writer covering veterans' issues. I'm the director of public affairs and veterans outreach at Bergmann & Moore, a law firm that exclusively handles veterans' benefits claims. I'm an Army veteran and served in Desert Storm and in Mogadishu, Somalia, and I embedded as a reporter in Iraq and Afghanistan. I'm working on my second book, a mystery novel. Almost done!
Bragging rights
I was a finalist for the Michael Kelly Award, a Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Foundation fellow, an Ochberg fellow, and past-president of Military Reporters & Editors
