Pam, who is Firepower 5's Wife, Commanding Officer, Mentor, Inspiration, Counselor, Confessor, and Love of his Life is providing support from Colorado Springs and counting the days to redeployment.

This Blog was originally designed to help keep her informed of all my wayward adventures, but there has been such a large response to it, that I am trying to expand it as much as I can.

Firepower 5 is a US Soldier. After 2 years of enlisted service with the 101st Airborne Division, He took an early discharge to attend ROTC and complete his BA in Economics before returning to active duty as a Field Artillery and later an Ordnance officer. After completing his MBA in Finance at St. Bonaventure University, he left active duty in favor of a career with Merrill Lynch. Recalled to active duty as a Reservist in support of Operations Enduring and Iraqi Freedom, he was offered the reinstatement of his Regular Army Commission. With his former students and soldiers in uniform and in harms way, he accepted the offer, resigned his position with Merrill, and is now serving as the Executive Officer of a Logistics Task Force in Afghanistan as part of Operation Enduring Freedom.
