United States Coast Guard – Aviation

Prior to my law enforcement career, I served a military tour of duty in the United States Coast Guard. I successfully completed air crewman flight candidate school and served as a helicopter air crewman. I was awarded numerous medals and citations before being honorably discharged from the military. My certifications and commendations include the following:
