"David is a combat medic currently stationed in Afghanistan. This is his second deployment with 6/8 Cav. He's an amazing father, husband, brother and son.

He grew up right here in Abilene, graduating from Wylie in 99. He volunteered with the View VFD alongside his Dad before deciding to become a medic.

He has been in for four years now, just recently reenlisting. He is not only a hometown hero, but he will forever be a hero to me and his three beautiful girls."
