On this Memorial Day


A sense of duty compelled me to join the U.S. Army after we were attacked on 9/11. I had to do more to serve.

A 30-year-old attorney, I closed my law practice, enlisted, earned an age waiver to fly Black Hawk helicopters, and became a Screaming Eagle serving in the 101st Airborne Division. In Iraq, I saw what happens when the rule of law breaks down.
